‘When Evil Lurks’ Trailer Teases Demonic Mayhem [Watch]

When Evil Lurks

It is not hyperbole to say that Demián Rugna’s film Terrified ruined many of our lives. Rugna’s ability to craft heart-stopping jumpscares and nightmarish imagery is something to behold (he also has a particularly terrifying segment in DREAD’s upcoming anthology Satanic Hispanics). Now, the Argentine director is back to plague our nightmares with his latest film, When Evil Lurks. Instead of haunted houses, Rugna is taking on the possession film with his special brand of terror.

In When Evil Lurks:

When brothers Pedro (Ezequiel Rodríguez) and Jimmy (Demián Salomón) discover that a demonic infection has been festering in a nearby farmhouse — its very proximity poisoning the local livestock — they attempt to evict the victim from their land. Failing to adhere to the proper rites of exorcism, their reckless actions inadvertently trigger an epidemic of possessions across their rural community. Now they must outrun an encroaching evil as it corrupts and mutilates everyone it is exposed to, and enlist the aid of a wizened “cleaner,” who holds the only tools that can stop this supernatural plague.

Watch the chilling new trailer now:

Rugna directed and wrote the film. Ezequiel Rodríguez, Demián Salomón, Silvina Sabater, Virginia Garofalo, Paula Rubinsztein, and Luis Dziembrowski star in the film.

When Evil Lurks comes to theaters on October 6, 2023 and comes to Shudder on October 27, 2023.
