Shudder is preparing to unleash Kandisha, its latest original film, this summer.
A stylish and gory take on the Moroccan folk legend of the vengeful female demon Aicha Kandicha, set against the scene of modern-day Paris, Kandisha is the latest brutal feature from the filmmaking team at the forefront of New French Extremity cinema: Inside and Livid duo Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.
Starring Mathilde Lamusse, Samarcande Saadi and Suzy Bemba, the film follows best friends Amélie, Bintou and Morjana as they hang together with other neighbourhood teens during the summer break. 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.
The film premieres on Shudder on 22nd July. Here’s the trailer:
Kandisha is available to stream online on Shudder UK, as part of a £4.99 monthly subscription, or £49.99 yearly membership.
