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 she is assaulted by her ex.
It’s summer break and best friends Amélie, Bintou and Morjana hang together with other neighborhood teens. Nightly, they have fun sharing scary stories and urban legends. But when Amélie is assaulted by her ex, she remembers the story of Kandisha, a powerful and vengeful demon. Afraid and upset, Amélie summons her. The next day, her ex is found dead. The legend is true and now Kandisha is on a killing spree— and it’s up to the three girls to break the curse.
Kandisha arrives on Shudder on July 22nd.
