Venezuelan horror film The Whistler lands North American distribution

Gisberg Bermudez The Whistler

The Venezuelan horror film THE WHISTLER is coming to North America, courtesy of indie distributors Uncork'd Entertainment and Dark Star Pictures.

Directed by Gisberg Bermudez from a screenplay he wrote with his sibling Gisyerg Bermudez, the film draws inspiration from a 

South American folk tale involving an evil spirit that feasts on children, the drunk and the unfaithful. In the Bermudezs' retelling, a father struggles to discover the origins of the Whistler's curse to save his daughter from being gradually possessed by the supernatural creature.

Uncork'd and Dark Star are planning to release THE WHISTLER sometime in the second quarter of 2019. Theatrical screenings in New York, California, Texas, and Florida will be followed by a VOD release across North America.

I had never heard of the concept of the Whistler before this, but I love the description that this creature likes to eat children, plus the drunk and the unfaithful. That's a variety of tastes.

I look forward to seeing the Whistler in action when this movie is released.

Uncork'd also released THE SHELTER, written and directed by John "The Arrow" Fallon
