Artsploitation Films to release on DVD and VOD December 13, 2016
Four teenagers get caught up in the midst of a deadly war between dark, ancient forces in a far away countryhouse in The Devil Lives Here (aka: O Diabo Mora Aqui, The Fostering ). The film enjoyed a world-wide festival run (including Sitges Film Festival, Morbido FilmFest, Brussels International Film Festival) and was the winner of Best Foreign Film at the 2016 FilmQuest. According to Scream Horror Mag the film, “Grabs you by the throat and rattles your nerves in a manner not at all unlike a Sam Raimi flick. The Devil Lives Here is the most beautiful nightmare you’re likely to have in a while.”
