XYZ Films has acquired North American rights from FilmSharks' Argentinian horror film "Legions" to launch it this year. The movie directed by Fabian Forte is stars Germán De Silva and Lorena Vega and was produced by Javier Diaz.
“We are truly delighted to release one of our best genre gems with one of the best US distribution houses,” said Guido Rud, CEO of FilmSharks. “We know XYZ will make this one shine at its finest.”
In "Legions", a powerful sorcerer, Antonio, is locked away in an asylum, and wastes away in his imprisonment as evil, demonic forces take control of Argentina. If Antonio can escape the psychiatric hospital, and find his daughter, Helena, their combined strength could save Argentina, but Helena has forgotten her powers. Antonio must reteach her the ways of magic and be humanity’s last hope against this ancient evil.
James Emanuel Shapiro, XYZ’s EVP, US Distribution, said: “I love 'Legions!' It is filled with amazing practical effects and loads of gore! It’s also empowered by Argentina’s history and culture and is a testament to the greatness of Latin American horror. I can’t wait for audiences to see Fabian’s latest epic.”
