[Trailer] Shout! Studios Unleashes a Demon with an Insatiable Hunger for Souls in 'The Soul Collector' this June!
Fear is only the beginning...
...Scream Factory has released a trailer and poster for writer/director Harold Hölscher's The Soul Collector, a story which came to him after the death of a friend on a South African highway, when he learned of a Zulu tradition that involves catching a soul in order to return it home.
In The Soul Collector:
"In an attempt to start a new life with his young, fragmented family, bankrupt William Ziel returns to the farm he inherited from his estranged father. Lazarus, the farmhand who took care of William's father in his lonely final hours, reappears soon after William, Sarah, and adopted daughter Mary arrive. A supposed chance meeting between Mary and Lazarus develops into a bond between two kindred spirits. But Lazarus carries a dark secret: a demon child with an insatiable appetite for human souls ... and now the Ziels’ newfound domesticity is placed at unfathomable risk."
Said Fantasia International Film Festival co-director, Mitch Davis, “(The Soul Collector has) an aesthetic that is alternately visually sumptuous and forcefully visceral, taking heightened uncanny flight through a consistently clever use of sound. Evocative in ways of Richard Stanley’s Namibian occult classic DUST DEVIL, undulating with spectral poetry...will unsettle you. It just may break your heart. Whatever the case, count on it returning to you in dreams.”
The film stars Tshamano Sebe, Keita Luna, Garth Breytenbach, Inge Beckman, Chris April and Owam Arwen Mditshwa.
Meet The Soul Collector when the film premieres on digital and VOD June 12th, 2020 from Scream Factory.
