Genre specialist, Jinga Films, the company that discovered A Serbian Film, Rabies and The House at the End of Time has just launched its Berlin Film Festival marketing campaign for Samuel Cunha Galli’s supernatural thriller OUR EVIL (MAL NOSSO) with a red band trailer that looks like it came direct from the Devil.
Set in the seedy underbelly of Sao Paulo, Brasil, an exorcist (Ademir Esteves) uses the dark web to employ a serial killer (Ricardo Casella) to protect his daughter (Laura Pepita) from demonic possession.
Jinga CEO Julian Richards, discovered OUR EVIL whilst serving on the jury of Blood Windows, a genre sidebar of the Latin American film market in Ventana Sur, Argentina. “It’s a sensational, stylized film with a narrative that keeps subverting your expectations” said Richards “It’s a brutal, terrifying experience, but at it’s heart it’s about the love a father has for his daughter and the sacrifices he will make to keep her safe”.
UK genre stalwart Kim Newman describes OUR EVIL as “a shoo-in for a remake rights sale, but also a possible break-out cult hit with discerning fright fans willing to embrace the subtitled likes of Martyrs, Let the Right One In or Under the Shadow“.
Alan Jones, director of the UK’s leading genre festival FrightFest describes the thriller as “shocking, surprising, gripping and always keeps you guessing. OUR EVIL will change the game for future Latin American genre cinema”.
