Home / Now Showing / WHEN EVIL LURKS
In Spanish with English subtitles.
We were there when Demián Rugna scared us witless with ATERRADOS. And we were there when he shaved years off of our lives with his segment in SATANIC HISPANICS. So you know we had to bring his newest album of terror to Beyond Fest as soon as we laid eyes on it. Brothers Pedro and Jimmy discover a “rotten” has been festering inside a farmhouse, a sort of demonic infection that slowly possesses all around it and destroys indiscriminately. Soon their attempts at stopping the infection only escalate things further and it’s not long before they need to call in a “cleaner” to help stop the infection spinning out of total control. Wild, grotesque and breathtakingly scary, WHEN EVIL LURKS reveals Rugna at the top of his game, crafting a cinematic gem that combines the best of Italian gore with the insidious terror of supernatural chillers.
