Devilworks Invades EFM with ‘After the Lethargy’



Genre sale outfit Devilworks has added two titles to its slate ahead of the European Film Market in Berlin (February 7-15), one of which is After the Lethargy,  a sci-fi centered on a young journalist who travels to the site of a terrifying alien abduction.

The first English-language feature from writer-director-producer Marc Carrete (Framed), the film has its world premiere at the Fantaspoa, where Carreté took home the “Best Ibero-American Film” award in 2014 with Asmodexia.

Written and directed by Carrete: “The film follows reporter Sara (Andrea Guasch) who travels to the hot spot where one of the most extraordinary contacts with extraterrestrials in history supposedly took place. A forest ranger (Joe Manjón) and a sinister villager (Ramon Canals), accompany the girl, helping her to overcome the dangers that nature entails. However, despite good intentions, they will soon be attacked by a creature that lives in the depths of the forest, being forced to take refuge in an old abandoned military barracks.

Explains the press release:

After the Lethargy is an all-out monster, promising a mesmerising mix of terror and adventure, all the while evoking memories of cult ’80s creations such as Creepshow or the “Tales from the Crypt” series – both major influences on Carreté. With most of the action taking place in the thick of the woods, After the Lethargy finds the local police force confirming the presence of a “code 86” in the National Park. Despite initial skepticism, everything suggests that some kind of beast – of origin unknown – may have woken up from its “lethargy.”

Here’s the trailer with poster art.
