Blue Finch Film Releasing presents queer horror ‘Swallowed’ on digital download on 24 April

Graham Robson March 23, 2023

From the director of The Ruins, Swallowed is a queer horror nightmare about drugs, bugs and the extremes we are willing to endure to protect the ones we love.

Benjamin and Dom have been best friends since they were kids – and Benjamin has been in love with Dom for almost that long. But Benjamin is heading to sunny Los Angeles to pursue a new career. Fearing the worst for his friend in the cutthroat city, Dom concocts a plan to make Benjamin some quick cash. All they have to do is a quick drug run across the border.


But all is not what it seems, as the bags of drugs they swallow for their smuggling trip turn out to be something far more deadly and disturbing than they ever could have imagined.

Starring Jena Malone (The Ruins, Donnie Darko), Cooper Koch (They/Them), Jose Colon and Mark Patton (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge), Swallowed is directed by Carter Smith (The Ruins) and has played at BFI Flare, FrightFest, Fantasia Film Festival and the Overlook Film Festival.
