No relation to Tilman Singer’s LUZ, the mystical thriller will be out next month.

Dark Sky Films has announced a September 15 VOD and digital release date for LUZ: THE FLOWER OF EVIL, from writer/director/producer Juan Diego Escobar Alzate. Yuri Vargas, Conrado Osorio, Andrea Esquivel, Sharon Guzman, Jim Muñoz, Johan Camacho and Daniel Paez star; the synopsis: “El Señor, the leader of a small cult in the mountains, returns to his village with a child who is purported to be the new Messiah. But when only pain and destruction befall the community, El Señor finds himself under attack from his own followers, including his three daughters, whose burgeoning femininity has already caused them to question their faith.”
