Variety has shared a first-look image (above) from When Evil Lurks, a new horror film from Terrified director Demián Rugna.
Co-produced by Shudder ad La Puerta Roja, When Evil Lurks is described as a “rural possession thriller” and is said to be “chaotic and tense,” taking aim at “ fear itself and its manifestation within us.”
In the film, “Two brothers find a mutilated corpse near their property and convene with the locals to suss it out. They learn that the odd happenings in their village are the cause of a spirit that’s found its way into a local man waiting for the proper protocols to rid his body of the festering demon.
“An escape attempt ensues as the film keeps its protagonists on edge, racing against imminent danger to shake the spirit’s relentless clutches.”
When Evil Lurks is slated to wrap in early 2023. The film will be Shudder’s first Spanish-language original.
