EMB quoted on the theatrical poster for Satan (Sheitan)

"Sharp, inventive and wickedly funny!" - EMB
Oh yes! EMB have only gone and got another quote on yet another cool horror film. Following Zomblee (Frankenstein Vs TCFBC), David Hall (Frostbite) and my own "Amazing" for The Living and The Dead, Soulmining makes it four with a quote on the theatrical poster for Satan (Sheitan).
We saw the film back in August at London's Frightfest (click here for the full report), and even though it was the midnight screening on the long, grim third day, we thoroughly enjoyed this manic French indie.
Starring the one and only Vincent Cassel, Satan (Sheitan) is the first feature from Kim Chapiron, a member of Kourtrajmé, a loose collective of vibrant, cutting-edge Young French film makers championed by Vincent Cassel, and it opens exclusively at London's ICA on Friday February 23rd.
Stay tuned to this website for a cool competition from Tartan where you can win copies of H6 and Doberman on DVD, as well as Satan T-shirts and mini Satan posters.
A night out clubbing in Paris takes a nasty turn for three friends (one Vietnamese, one African, one French), when they accept the invitation of the beautiful Eve (A Ma Soeur’s Roxanne Mesquida) to celebrate Christmas by visiting her house in the country.
Once there they meet the manically grinning caretaker Joseph (a scene-stealing performance from Vincent Cassel - Irreversible, La Haine - who also has a Producer credit) who welcomes the out of town guests while his heavily pregnant wife Marie lurks upstairs.
That evening, what begins innocently as Christmas dinner turns into disturbing conversations about sex, satanic possession and evil. As the weekend progresses Joseph’s behaviour only gets more erratic and the young friends realise their host has made a demonic pact. All hell is about to break loose.
