“… an atmospheric ghost story with a cheeky undercurrent of absurdist humour.” Variety
Not all wedding guests have an invitation…
After the discovery of a buried skeleton, a wedding party descends into chaos as the bridegroom’s behaviour becomes more and more erratic. What at first appears to be drunken celebration or marital jitters turns into something far darker when they discover that he has been possessed by a restless female spirit.
As with Iranian supernatural drama UNDER THE SHADOW, cultural nightmares from the past again prove to make poignant and thought-provoking stories, in this clever take on the Jewish legend of the Dybbuk. Featuring a film score by Krzysztof Penderecki (THE EXORCIST, THE SHINING).
