A young couple living alone in the woods, who must contend with a life-altering illness that manifests itself in a violent and terrifying way. Rose’s disease is a vampiric, parasitic thirst for blood. As her hunger grows, all humanity seems to give way to a feral violence that harms both her and those around her.  Their loving relationship strains under the burden of Rose’s illness, and it is only a matter of time until the secluded life that they have built is upended entirely.



“A striking debut by British first-timer Jennifer Sheridan” – Screendaily

“It’s sadly fitting that a film like “Rose: A Love Story” was released in a year which has been so dominated by the need to isolate for fear of a deadly disease. If there’s anything worth saving from 2020 though, this film deserves to be high on anyone’s list. Sheridan and Stokoe may not have intended it, but “Rose” has become the most relevant horror film this year.” – In Their Own League

“Exploring the bonds and obligations of love is not the usual premise for a horror film, but this is how Rose – A Love Story sets itself apart.” – The Reviews Hub

“Rose: A Love Story is a wonderfully crafted genre piece which has the potential to draw in an audience that isn’t normally attracted to horror movies and also those looking for a vampire film with a difference.” – Movies in Focus

“Atmospheric, chilling and gorgeous; Rose: A Love Story, Sheridan offers something wonderfully inventive and impressive within the vampire genre” – The Hollywood News

“Rose: A Love Story is a surprisingly tender and affecting drama which makes for a refreshing take on the genre” – JumpCut Online 

“Jennifer Sheridan’s chilly debut feature is an atmospheric horror thriller and perfect for the peculiar times we are currently living in.” – The Digital Fix
