We’ve been talking about L. Gustavo Cooper’s upcoming Copiii: The 1st Entry for a few months now, and today we have more to show you in the form of a theatrical trailer and updated synopsis.
The film stars Rod Luzzi, Graci Carli and Emily Rogers. The story is by Cooper and Coe Douglas with a screenplay co-written by Cooper and Jon Bosworth. It’s based on Romanian folklore that dates back to the 1500s which was used by parents as a way to keep children from sneaking out or acting up.
Basically the legend says that the only way any member of the group of gypsies known as the Copiii Pierdere could have children was to shed blood in a particular vengeance demon’s name in the form of a cursed ritual. This ritual was named Din Burta de Sarpe, Romanian for ‘belly of a snake.’ The first time a man performed the ritual, he was horrified to find that it drove a loving couple of villagers insane to the point of death, leaving their unborn child unharmed beside their corpses. Disgusted as he was at his own actions, he took the infant and raised it as his own and passed this gruesome act through his family’s bloodline. This year will be the 500-year anniversary of the creation of Copiii Pierdere and the Din Burta de Sarpe. Some believe that their power is growing stronger because of this occasion.
Newlyweds Holly and Trevor Davidson are on a road trip to celebrate their honeymoon in Miami when their new life together takes a surreal turn. A whimsical pit stop in a tourist trap goes horribly wrong, and they find themselves forced to face an ominous new presence in their lives and an ambiguous threat. But is that threat coming from Trevor’s family, Holly’s dark past, or something far more sinister and otherworldly, such as the ancient curse of the Copiii Pierdere?
