Pelican Blood is a 2010 film which premiered at the 2010 Edinburgh Film Festival. It is a low-budget film, shot in a freewheeling style, directed by Karl Golden, adapted from Cris Freddi's novel by Cris Cole. The two main protagonists, Nikko (Harry Treadaway), and Stevie (Emma Booth), are self-destructive people who have met through a suicide website. Nikko has an obsessive compulsive personality.

"Pelican Blood is a fraught drama about youthful angst and rebelliousness set (very incongruously) in the world of birdwatching... that evokes memories of Trainspotting...[It] doesn't really hang together. None the less, there is enough raw talent here to enable the film to take wing." [1]
