An unsuspecting young painter becomes the target of a Churail in Black Lake, the upcoming indie horror film from K/XI, and we have a haunting new trailer for the film to share with Daily Dead readers.
"Looking for inspiration and to pursue her passion for Expressionist painting, Aarya, a young woman, leaves her family in the city to house-sit, in a large secluded property surrounded by beautiful Scottish landscapes. She is gifted a red scarf, sent by her aunt from her recent travels to Pakistan, and is haunted by a Churail: a demonic and malevolent South-Asian Witch (traditionally depicted with long black hair over her face and backwards feet), and is forced to face the devastating cycles of violence the Churail brings with her."
Black Lake was written, directed, and produced by K/XI, who also stars in the film, alongside Aditi Bajpai and Ayvianna Snow. The film also features an original soundtrack by BurningTapes, which was released by Burning Witches Records on vinyl and sold out almost instantly, but it's available to listen too on digital platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and Bandcamp. Part of what works so well in this trailer is the music and, for those who are curious, the trailer track is Lingua Ignota's Woe to all (on the day of my wrath).
With a planned festival run, we'll have much more to share with Daily Dead readers in the near future. Until then, you can learn more about Black Lake and the creative team behind the film at the official Bad Wolf Films website: https://www.badwolffilms.co.uk/
