The vampires aren’t the most vicious characters in this intense and moving horror/drama.
Shudder will premiere ALL THE MOONS, directed by Igor Legarreta and scripted by Legarreta and Jon Sagalá, on its U.S., UK/Ireland and Australia/New Zealand platforms February 10. Haizea Carneros, Josean Bengoetxea and Itziar Ituño star; the film took Best Director, Best Cinematography and the Audience Award at last year’s Fantasia International Film Festival. The synopsis: “North of Spain, at the end of the 19th century, during the final throes of the last Carlist war, a little girl [Carneros] is rescued from an orphanage by a mysterious woman [Ituño] after it’s destroyed by a bomb. Wounded and close to death, the girl believes the woman is an angel coming to take her to Heaven. Soon, however, she discovers that this strange being has given her the gift of eternal life by turning her into a vampire.”
