First Look At ‘The Soul Eater’ Feature Adaptation

A New Image Teases The Upcoming Grisly Thriller

WTFilms just released an eerie first look of their upcoming film The Soul Eater, directed by French filmmaking duo Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.

A Creepy Image For A Creepy Horror-Thriller

The image depicts a kid holding hands with a creepy figure that appears to be a person wearing a dark hood with antlers on it. The two of them are giving their back to the camera as a devilish red light illuminates some kind of hospital hallway in front of them. While plot details haven’t been revealed yet, the official synopsis for the film anticipates that the horror-thriller based on Alexis Laipsker’s bestseller will focus on a “chilling drama” set in a mountain village where an old legend about a malevolent creature resurfaces after the disappearance of local children. Julien Maury announced the beginning of the film’s production with an Instagram post earlier this year, so it’s safe to assume that the film’s currently in post-production, and more news will soon be revealed.

Who’s Involved In The Film?

The Soul Eater is produced by Phase 4 Productions and Place du Marché Productions and is set to receive a theatrical distribution in France. It marks the seventh collaboration for French directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who are best known for their violent 2007 slasher Inside and the underwater haunted house film 2021’s The Deep House, as well as Leatherface, the 2017 prequel to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. Cinematographer Simon Roca reunites with the directors after their collaboration on Kandisha (2020), and we also got a first look at the cast – Virginie Ledoyen (Rabid Dogs), Paul Hamy (Get In), and Sandrine Bonnaire (Happening) are all set to star. Paris-based WTFilms will screen a promo of The Soul Eater at next week’s American Film Market.

News about The Soul Eater will likely come by the end of next week, so stay tuned to learn more about the upcoming thriller, which promises to terrify audiences just like the original novel did.
