From the Press Release:

Chicago, IL (March 13, 2019) – The evocative and atmospheric HAGAZUSSA, the debut feature from Austrian filmmaker Lukas Feigelfeld, is a haunting pagan death trip—a startling vision of psychedelic horror set in a dark past when Europe suffered from the paranoia and superstition that swept the land.  

HAGAZUSSA (a.k.a. HAGAZUSSA: A HEATHEN’S CURSE) will receive a limited theatrical release across the U.S. in mid-April, followed immediately by its release on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD platforms. 

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.   

HAGAZUSSA enjoyed lauded screenings at genre festivals across the globe, including Germany’s Filmfest Nights, Lisbon’s International Horror Film Festival and Austin’s colossal Fantastic Fest.  Opening in limited theaters in top markets across the U.S. beginning April 19th, HAGAZUSSA will be  released on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD (iTunes, Amazon Instant, FandangoNow, GooglePlay, Vudu and YouTube) on April 23, 2019. 

Acclaimed by Bloody Disgusting as Germany’s answer to the 2015 cult favorite The Witch, HAGAZUSSA is a creepy creation filled with just the right mix of moody atmosphere, brooding terror and supernatural dread to ignite the fire of slow-burn horror fans everywhere.
