A Part of Cinepocalypse 2019 | North American Premiere

Twenty-five years ago, four Moroccan kids are having fun at frightening one another as they explore a condemned—likely haunted—house, when one of them disappears under mysterious circumstances. After losing contact with each other, the remaining three are reunited when their long-lost friend suddenly comes back into their lives 25 years later. Together, they are forced to confront the terrifying events of their youth and fight a monstrous creature born from a horrible legend. Reminiscent of IT, but with a spine-chilling, North African twist.
