Cramped terror, blood-soaked suspense, claustrophobic anguish and full-blown fright all await you in director Eric Valette's grisly debut feature, a critically acclaimed box-office success in his native France. Four prisoners find an ancient diary of black magic spells offering them freedom. But when fraudster Eric Carrere, transsexual Marcus, unhinged Daisy and intellectual wife-murderer Lassalle utter a satanic incantation, they are confined to yet more claustrophobic hell. For in another nightmare limbo their vanity is further tested by an evil presence granting each a solitary wish. And you should always be careful of what you wish for... With outrageously unique special effects, MALEFIQUE is a ghoulish, grimy wonder, where time-suspended luridness and surreal hallucinations combine to provide a vivid gross-out spectacle and genuinely gruesome pleasures.
