Demián Rugna’s next supernatural horror is heading to Shudder—and the channel is already in full spooky season swing with a new look at the next V/H/S. Plus, what’s coming on the American Horror Story: Delicate premier. To me, my spoilers!
Deadline reports IFC Films has acquired the rights to Where Evil Lurks, the latest film from Terrified director, Demián Rugna, with plans for an October 6 theatrical release before a October 27 premiere on Shudder. Starring Ezequiel Rodriguez, Demián Salomon, Luis Ziembrowski, Silvia Sabater and Marcelo Michinaux, the story follows “a pair of brothers [who] find a mutilated corpse near their property and convene with the locals to suss it out. They soon 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.”
Coming Soon has a new poster for David Gordon Green’s The Exorcist: Believer.
Shudder has released a new trailer for V/H/S/85, a sixth entry in the ongoing horror anthology franchise, this time including segments from Mike P. Nelson, Natasha Kermani, Gigi Saul Guerrero, Scott Derrickson and David Bruckner.
During a recent interview with The Wrap, Craig Mazin stated he’s “not against the idea” of a Last of Us spinoff series, but doesn’t believe he’d be personally involved.
We haven’t talked about that specifically because we’re so focused on just telling this main narrative. I’m not against the idea of other shows that may draw from these characters or that world. I don’t know how much more The Last of Us I personally would be able to do. I mean, these shows are so big, I’m sort of burning one of the precious few remaining decades I have on telling this story. But in principle, I have no issue with it whatsoever. And I’m sure Neil would be interested as well. If there was something that made sense, then I don’t see why not. My great hope is that if there is anything like that, that it’s done with as much care and respect and love as what we are applying to this series right now.
