BAD CUPID tells the story of love held hostage as an unhinged Cupid (Archie) takes a heartbroken guy and his romantic rival on a comic kidnapping. Archie is a man on a mission to ensure true love always wins. Or, short of that, someone is going to die trying. Not that he cares which. So beware anyone who gets in his way, especially anyone he’s actually trying to help. In this case, that’s the heartbroken guy (Dave), his kooky cousin and the man about to marry the girl that got away. But just because the girl is getting married doesn’t mean the groom can’t be bound, gagged and stuffed into a bathroom stall, where Dave will face a fateful decision — help in his escape or help Archie in a capital crime. Oh, the choices we have to make for love.
BAD CUPID is full of twists with a surprise ending you’ll never see coming.
Written by Neal Howard & Ira Fritz and Anthony Piatek, BAD CUPID was co-directed by Diane Cossa and Neal Howard and was produced by Larry Jay Tish. The film was shot in its entirety in Buffalo, New York in the Fall of 2019.
