Shudder has released a trailer and images for the French horror Kandisha. Directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the film is inspired by the Moroccan folk legend of Aicha Kandicha and follows Amelie (Mathilde Lamusse), a young woman who summons a powerful and vengeful demon after being attacked by her ex.
It’s summer vacation and best friends Amélie, Bintou and Morjana hang out with other neighborhood teenagers. Every night they have fun sharing scary stories and urban legends. But when Amélie is attacked by her ex, she remembers the story of Kandisha, a powerful and vengeful demon. Frightened and upset, Amélie calls her. The next day, her ex is found dead. The legend is true and now Kandisha is on a murderous quest – and it’s up to the three girls to break the curse.
Kandisha arrives at Shudder on July 22.
