Monday, March 27, 2023 | News


The folk-horror film is coming later in 2023.

Writer/director F. Javier Gutiérrez, who previously helmed BEFORE THE FALL and RINGS and was attached for a while to the CROW remake, returned to his home country for THE WAIT, which stars Víctor Clavijo, Ruth Díaz and Pedro Casablanc. It’s described as “a sinister folk-horror tragedy that takes place in the dark, magic and forgotten Andalusian countryside, a place marked by ancestral traditions.” The synopsis: “Eladio [Clavijo], hunting estate keeper, takes a bribe from a veteran hunter. Weeks later, his whole life falls apart. What looked like the opportunity of a lifetime, turns into a macabre descent to hell when he finds out that his misfortune might not be entirely by chance.”
