Kids… we shoot these little scamps out of our bodies and are required to love them – even when they suffer demonic infestation. Which, by the way, is the best and least used reason to call in sick to work… “Sorry, not coming in today. Demons, man. They’re everywhere.”
In any event, read on for your first look at Our Evil!
From the Press Release:
Set in the seedy underbelly of Sao Paulo, Brazil, an exorcist (Ademir Esteves) uses the dark web to employ a serial killer (Ricardo Casella) to protect his daughter (Laura Pepita) from demonic possession. Samuel Galli directs.
Jinga CEO Julian Richards discovered OUR EVIL whilst serving on the jury of Blood Windows, a genre sidebar of the Latin American film market in Ventana Sur, Argentina. “It’s a sensational, stylized film with a narrative that keeps subverting your expectations,” said Richards. “It’s a brutal, terrifying experience, but at its heart it’s about the love a father has for his daughter and the sacrifices he will make to keep her safe.”
UK genre stalwart Kim Newman describes OUR EVIL as “a shoo-in for a remake rights sale, but also a possible break-out cult hit with discerning fright fans willing to embrace the subtitled likes of Martyrs, Let the Right One In, or Under the Shadow.”
Alan Jones, director of the UK’s leading genre festival FrightFest, describes the thriller as “shocking, surprising, gripping, and always keeps you guessing. OUR EVIL will change the game for future Latin American genre cinema.”
Keep your eyes peeled for a world premiere festival announcement shortly.
