The cast includes Amy Smart, Wallis Barton, George Blagden, Sibyl Gregory, Dee Bradley Baker, Magui Bravi, Clara Kovacic, James Wright, Agustín Olcese, Luz Champane and Amparo Espinola; the synopsis: “100 CANDLES centers on a game that traps a group of friends, as they tell one another horror tales in front of a magical mirror, by candlelight. One story for every candle, they cannot leave the game until all candles are out; otherwise they will fall victim to a witch’s curse.”
