Demián Rugna's "WHEN EVIL LURKS" Coming to Shudder on October 27, 2023

A wildly original take on a possession film, "When Evil Lurks" promises to be a shocking supernatural thriller from Argentine master of horror, writer-director Demián Rugna. In the film, when brothers Pedro (Ezequiel Rodríguez) and Jimmy (Demián Salomón) discover that a demonic infection has been festering in a nearby farmhouse, they attempt to evict the victim from their land. Failing to adhere to the proper rites of exorcism, their reckless actions inadvertently trigger an epidemic of possessions across their rural community. Now they must outrun an encroaching evil as it corrupts and mutilates everyone it is exposed to, and enlist the aid of a wizened “cleaner,” who holds the only tools that can stop this supernatural plague.

The film has been well-received and promises to be one of the most shocking and dread-inducing horror films in recent times.

Born in Haedo, Buenos Aires, Argentina, director and screenwriter Demián Rugna specializes in fantasy and horror films. After making numerous short films in the horror genre and a large number of original scripts, he's directed several feature films. His fourth film, Terrified, was multi-awarded and the most successful horror film at the box office in Argentina. "When Evil Lurks", his fifth film  premiered at the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival.
