First look at Nico van den Brink’s horror-thriller MOLOCH: "Production is underway in the Netherlands on director Nico van den Brink’s horror-thriller MOLOCH. With a screenplay by van den Brink and Daan Bakker, from a story by Nico van den Brink with additional support from Jaap Peter Enderle, MOLOCH is produced by Sabine Brian and Ronald Versteeg for NL Film (Amsterdam). Todd Brown and Maxime Cottray are executive producing for XYZ Films. MOLOCH will be released theatrically throughout the Benelux by Splendid Film with XYZ Films representing worldwide sales outside of Benelux.

In the film, 38-year-old Betriek lives at the edge of a peat bog in the North of the Netherlands.

The more she digs, the more she becomes convinced that she is being hunted by something ancient.

One of those shorts - The Burden, also produced by NL Film - is currently in development as an English-language feature that will be van den Brink’s second film, with James Wan and Sam Raimi producing.
