Much hyped Chilean found footage indie Wekufe: The Origin of Evil has been compared to The Blair Witch Project
From Chilean filmmaker Javier Attridge comes Wekufe: The Origin of Evil, a found footage horror film that has been touted as being Chile’s answer to The Blair Witch Project.
Here’s the synopsis: A journalism student travels with her boyfriend to Chiloé, a remote Patagonia island in the south of Chile, to investigate the connection that exists between the great number of sexual related crimes and the myths and legends that surround this isolated and mysterious place. Soon they will find out that behind these legends lies something much more obscure that will begin to unravel towards an unavoidable destiny. Gradually they will come to understand that all too often it is best to keep your sanity than to discover the truth.
No word on official release date for this much-buzzed indie, but after a succession of international festival dates, Wekufe: The Origin of Evil will play the Fright Night Film Festival horror weekend in Kentucky in late November.
