Sebastian is a 2023 American crime horror film about a reincarnated Christian martyr pursuing the love of a young woman while killing others.
Directed by Mann Robinson (Super Turnt) from a screenplay co-written by Ken King.
The movie stars horror icon Jamie Bernadette (I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu), Darius McCrary, Torrei Hart, Luca Della Valle, Clifton Powell, Cocoa Brown, Jermaine Hopkins, Jayson Warner Smith, Tracey Graves, Michael Emery and Jermel Howard.
Sebastian (ac. AD 288) was an early Christian saint and martyr. He was killed during the Roman emperor Diocletian’s persecution of Christians, initially being tied to a post or tree and shot with arrows, though this did not kill him. Irene of Rome would come to his rescue and nurture him back to health. Although he survived, Sebastian was later killed by his enemies.
For centuries after this event, there has been a mass number of young women named Irene murdered and missing around the globe. Legend has it that Sebastian has been living among us disguised as a regular civilian named Augustus and is the murderous, revenging spirit that is reborn every sixty years because of the blood of Irene.
The present-day Irene is first charmed by his gentlemanly aura and his world sophistication but then becomes put off by his aggression. Sebastian will not stop until he gets her blood. Or her love. Anyone that gets in the way of his pursuit of Irene will be eliminated…
Sebastian is now streaming on Tubi.
Director Mann Robinson stated, “It was an honour to work with true legends on this project. Felt like I was working with seven acting instructors!” Jamie Bernadette commented about joining the cast, saying, “It was a no-brainer to accept the lead protagonist role of ‘Irene’ after I read the brilliant script by Mann Robinson and watched his excellent past directing work. Add to that a really strong cast of seasoned actors and an awesome producing team, and we have gold. They all made my job easy.”
