From the Press Release:
Blue Paper Film Works is proud to announce the digital VOD release of the disquieting and poetic new film In the Shadow through Devolver Digital Films.
In the Shadow, directed by Nicole Elmer, is a unique feature-length arthouse horror film that follows Diego, a healer who, exhausted from the demands of his “gift,” lives in isolation in Puerto Rico. His life is disrupted when a young woman arrives and discovers that Diego’s special abilities come with a violent curse, which changes their lives. Notorious cult badass Danny Trejo appears in the film as “The Hermit.”
“Diego’s story is much like that of Faust and the Devil… Faust, who wants what the stars did not foresee in his future, calls upon greater powers than his own to get what he wants,” explains director Elmer, “but then he has to pay the price, later, with his soul.”
The digital VOD (Video on Demand) release is scheduled for Tuesday, June 17, 2014, through Devolver. The film will be available through iTunes, Amazon, PlayStation, Xbox, VUDU, Distrify, Vimeo on Demand, VHX, Google Play, and others. The film is currently available on cable VOD (check your local listings) and on DVD through InTheShadowMovie.com.
Exhausted from the demands of his abilities as a healer, Diego (Jorge Sermini) lives in isolation on a small island in his native Puerto Rico. His quiet life is disrupted when Hilary (Michelle Keffer), a documentary filmmaker, arrives to work on a project. Intrigued by Diego’s mystery and the local gossip about him, she tries to get closer to him. He allows her into his life, but as the two become attracted to each other, Hilary discovers that Diego’s “gift” comes with a curse, an uncontrollably violent one that brings painful consequences to their lives.
