Last month we brought you first word on Chris Alonso and Joshua Louis’ co-written and directed horror feature Devil’s Tree: Rooted Evil, and today we’ve got a handful of exclusive stills, a new teaser, and word from Louis on the flick (which is purportedly based on true events), which is available now on VOD on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon via Distribber. Check it out.
Devil’s Tree: Rooted Evil stars Maddy Curley, Eddie Kaulukukui and Roberto Escobar, and according to the feature’s official synopsis, revolves around, “Samantha (Curley), a college student studying journalism, who needs to finish her thesis with one last breaking news story. Along with her friend Rob, Samantha stumbles across a news article about an old tree in a local park where many horrible acts occurred. The locals have given the tree the name Devils Tree because of its urban legends of mass murders, satanic rituals, and paranormal activity. She decides this is the perfect story to finish her thesis on. As Sam digs deeper into the realm of the tree, she begins to uncover the truth about these urban legends. Struggling with her own demons of her past, Samantha is confronted with the true demon of the tree and now must expose the truth in hopes to set it free. In the end, Samantha finds the real reason why evil is so rooted at The Devil’s Tree.”
Produced by Jonathan Phillips and Matt Weight, filmmaker Louis says of Devil’s Tree: Rooted Evil, “The film is truly based on more than just the real events that happened at the tree, such as the murders in the 70’s and satanic rituals in the 90’s. It incorporates what we personally encountered and experienced at the tree and how it affected all of us. Some stories are folklore, but really bad stuff has been happening at this tree for a very long time. I’m honestly pretty shocked the city allows people to still access it. No one has told this unique story through film yet and we felt it was about time someone did.”
