The Black Forest (A Mata Negra)

Supernatural Horror | 96 min. | Brazil | 2019 | TRAILER
In a forest in the heart of Brazil, a young woman sees her life change as well as the lives of everyone around her when she finds the Lost Book of Cipriano, whose magic, besides granting power and wealth to whoever possesses it, can release an apocalyptic evil upon the Earth. When she accidentally unleashes the demonic powers of the book, her world suddenly veers into blood-splattered pandemonium as young Carla now resorts to casting one Satanic rite after another in her desperation to fix a long, corpse-strewn trail of missteps.

“The film is bloody and bananas, and [uses] its limited budget to craft a gorily unhinged world of hell with a diabolically compromised innocent at its centre.” ~Anton Bitel, Projected Figures
