Shudder is set to unleash the demonic folklore-inspired horror film Kandisha later this month. Ahead of its release, we’ve got the brand new haunting trailer.

From the directing team of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, best known for the cult hits Inside and Livid, comes this dark tale starring Mathilde Lamusse, Samarcande Saadi, and Suzy Bemba.


Described as a stylish and gory take on the Morrocan folk legend of the vengeful female demon Aicha Kandicha, the film is set against the backdrop of modern-day Paris.


“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 will be available exclusively on Shudder from July 22, 2021.
