‘Errementari’ Imagery Capture the Souls of the Unwitting

Filmax International ([REC], Sleep Tight) has shared with us several new photos from their fantasy horror Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil, the feature debut of Basque country-born Paul Urkijo Alijo.

Based on a Basque folktale, ”Patxi herrementaria,” collected by a 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.

“It’s a Gothic horror demonic tale, with adventure and black humor,” said Urkijo. “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.

In the film:

Alava, 19th century. Alfredo is investigating an event that leads him to a blacksmith’s shop deep in the forest, where a blacksmith named Patxi lives, a man the villagers tell stories about related to pacts with the devil. One day, an orphan girl sneaks into the shop, uncovering the terrible truth the man conceals.
