The horror film website Bloody Disgusting reports that the next flick for Arkansas-born indie horror director Eric England will be a body-terror film called "Contracted" about a girl who catches a bizarre STD after a one night stand. If only that had happened in "Twilight: Breaking Dawn," all would be right with the world.

"This is a step in a different and exciting direction for me," England told Bloody Disgusting. "'Contracted' is a much different subject matter than what I'm used to taking on. It's intimate and personal and has a lot to say about sexuality and promiscuity. If all goes right, I hope this film will do for hooking up with random strangers what 'Jaws' did for going to the beach."

England, the Arkansas-born writer/director whose shot-in-the-Ozarks slasher flick "Madison County" won the audience prize at The Little Rock Horror Picture Show a few weeks back, has just completed his second feature, "Roadside," about a couple held hostage in a car by an armed killer.
