If you’ve been lurking around Modern Horrors for a while, the writing and directing duo of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo might be familiar to you. Known particularly around here for French extremity cult classic Inside, their resume also includes Livid, Among The Living, and Leatherface. You might also know that we’ve been eagerly awaiting their latest film Kandisha since late 2019. Finally, we have a trailer and release information to share with you!

The press release describes this as “A stylish and gory take on the Morrocan folk legend of the vengeful female demon Aicha Kandicha set against the scene of modern-day Paris” and the trailer definitely gives us a glimpse of that gore! Check it out below and let us know if you’re excited for this one!

Kandisha will be streaming exclusively on Shudder starting July 22nd, 2021.

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.
