The feature narrative debut of Jorge Torres-Torres, editor of Toad Road and Felt (as well as responsible for additional cinematography on both films), Sisters of the Plague seems a dream(y) collaboration of vivid, haunting contemporary horror. Torres-Torres reunites with Toad Road director Jason Banker on the screenplay, while the film stars Josephine Decker, artist and filmmaker behind last years lyrical and unsettling double feature Thou Wast Mild and Lovely and Butter on the Latch. Shock Till You Drop premieres both the art and teaser for Sisters of the Plague ahead of this weekends Outfest World Premiere.
In Sisters of the Plague, Decker stars in a sinister New Orleans ghost story that deftly combines the otherworldly dread of Under the Skin with the self-aware stylings of American Horror Story. From first-time filmmaker Jorge Torres-Torres, this creepy thriller follows Jo, a haunted house tour guide, whose sensitivity to spirits takes a dark turn when her sickly father visits the home she shares with her girlfriend. Sensing evil, Jo seeks a medium’s help, only to be warned that she is facing a vengeful power beyond her control.
Sisters of the Plague premieres at Outfest, Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival, this Sunday, July 12th. For tickets and more info, head right here.
