On the outskirts of a small town lies Devil's Den, a mysterious tract of woods where many have entered but no one has ever left. The local rumor is that the spirit of a young girl who was horrifically murdered there haunts and hunts in this dense forest, brutally slaying anyone who dares to step into her terrain. When a man with a dark past crosses her path, a series of events are set in motion that may lead to a peculiar kind of redemption for two tragically tortured souls. Part gothic fairytale and part chilling horror, director Justin P. Lange's debut feature balances rich imagery with a brutal and bloody story of unlikely kindred spirits who must defend themselves against the villainous powers of the 'normal' world.

Austria, 2018, 94min, German with English subtitles, directed by Justin P. Lange

In 2019 the ACFs Cine Club will try to investigate the relationship of Austrian cinema and genre. We begin with a decent into the darker spheres of horror, obsession and suspense. A selection of films spanning the silent era to the present day will showcase varied approaches to this genre. Throughout the year and future programs we will embark on other genres and shall try to establish an understanding of the common tropes and signs found throughout cinema history which make it a truly universal and international language understood by all humans who after all share similar fears and desires.
