“The Curse of La Patasola is a character-driven horror that we feel is going to appeal to a wide audience,” said Tony Piantedosi, SVP of Acquisitions at Vertical Entertainment. “We were drawn to the story and mythology and the way the creature was brought onto the screen. We think fans are going to love this movie.”

We are currently discussing arrangements with partners across multiple industries and look forward to working with them to bring The Curse of La Patasola to life.”
