When Evil Lurks (Cuando Acecha la Maldad) (LUXFILMFEST)
Sélection Officielle - Hors CompétitionDemián Rugna, 99 min, 2023 - Argentinien
In a remote village, two brothers find a mutilated corpse near their property. They are told that the strange things happening in their village are due to a demon spirit that has settled in the purulent body of that man. The evil from which he suffers soon spreads like an epidemic, affecting other inhabitants of the region. Demián Rugna, the bad boy of current horror cinema, uses a deliciously anxiety-inducing direction to give this family drama remarkable scope, summoning up the real demons of a country in crisis.
