In an early present from Bloody Disgusting, History of the Occult, one of the most successful Latin horror films of all time, is now streaming on SCREAMBOX!
From writer/director Cristian Ponce, History of the Occult was notably the highest-rated horror movie of 2021 on Letterboxd‘s Year in Review roundup, as rated by Letterboxd users.
“History of the Occult pulls viewers deep into a world of conspiracy and witchcraft.
In the Lovecraftian horror film, “Producers of the nightly show ’60 minutes to Midnight’ have been dutifully planning a riveting final broadcast, but even they could not have predicted what their guest, Adrian Marcato, has in store. As the final frames of the legendary show flicker from televisions across the country, Marcato readies himself to expose a conspiracy that could shake the very foundation of their nationhood; that the government is aligned with a dangerous supernatural coven.”
During its festival run, the bone-chilling film won the Le Film Français prize at Cannes’ Blood Window sidebar, Best Argentine Breakthrough Performance Actor and the Special Jury Award for Best Latin American First Feature at the Mar del Plata Film Festival. In addition, History of the Occult was nominated for Best Motion Picture at Sitges, Spain’s premier festival specializing in fantasy and horror films.
“Mystery, conspiracy and the supernatural, intrigues and excites something in all of us,” said Brad Miska, Managing Director of Bloody Disgusting. “Cristian (Ponce) melds these themes together in such a brilliant way, making History of the Occult the kind of film viewers can’t look away from. We are thrilled to bring this horror film, which ended up as the highest-rated horror film of 2021 on Letterboxd, to our SCREAMBOX viewers!”
