Filmax Bringing Gothic Horror Demonic Tale ‘Errementari’ to Cannes

Barcelona-based Filmax International ([REC], Sleep Tight) has taken all rights to fantasy horror Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil, the feature debut of Basque country-born Paul Urkijo Alijo, Variety is reporting out of Cannes.

Based on a Basque folk tale, ”Patxi herrementaria,” collected by priest, archaeologist and anthropologist José Migel de Barandiarán in 1903, “the story is set in the Basque region in 1845, in a universe inhabited by mythological diabolic creatures, battling to capture the souls of the unwitting.

Urkijo told the site:

“It’s a Gothic horror demonic tale, with adventure and black humor. I intend to plunge the spectator into Basque folk fantastic imagery that I love so much.”

Errementari is godfathered and produced by celebrated Spanish director Álex de la Iglesia (The Bar, The Day of the Beast), in co-production with Kinoskopik, Pokeepsie Film, Nadie es Perfecto PC, Gariza Films, Euskaltel and The Project Film Club.
