ScreenDaily reports that Uncork'd Entertainment has acquired the North American distribution rights to Samuel Cunha Galli‘s brutal Brazilian thriller Our Evil (Mal Nosso).
They plan to release the film in theaters in New York and Los Angeles in partnership with Dark Star Pictures, which will be followed up by a VOD release.
In the film, set in the seedy underbelly of Sao Paulo, Brasil, an exorcist (Ademir Esteves) uses the dark web to employ a serial killer (Ricardo Casella) to protect his daughter (Laura Pepita) from demonic possession.
“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,” said Jinga CEO Julian Richards.
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”.
