John Connor [Celluloid 03.13.19] Germany horror

The first trailer for the hotly anticipated German horror film Hagazussa has landed from Doppelgänger Releasing (the genre label of arthouse distributor Music Box Films).

The feature film debut of director Lukas Feigelfeld has been compared to The Witch and the folkoric nature of the film along with the sumptuous cinematography certainly fits the bill.

Hagazussa takes place in the Austrian Alps in the 15th century when people lived in fear of witches and ancient magic.

In the 15th Century in the remote Austrian Alps, the orphan Albrun (Celina Peter) grows up to be a simple goatherd living in solitude...and a marked woman.

As a scapegoat of ancient myths and monstrous misogyny, Albrun (portrayed by Aleksandra Cwen as an adult) finds herself tormented by the local townsfolk, driving her to unleash the inner darkness that swells within her. A self-styled witch, Albrun soon exercises her other-worldly birthright and conjures a plague that makes the surrounding human cruelty look pathetic and small by comparison.

The film will open in limited theaters on April 19th (see theater listing below the trailer) before arriving on VOD/DVD/Blu-ray April 23rd.
