‘The Devil’s Bath’ – Shudder Acquires Psychological Horror Film from ‘The Lodge’ Filmmakers

A new psychological horror movie, The Devil’s Bath, is on the way from The Lodge and Goodnight Mommy filmmakers Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala. Variety reports that horror streaming service Shudder has acquired the film ahead of its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival.

The Devil’s Bath is expected to release this summer.

The German-language horror film is “set in 1750 Austria, at a time when villages were surrounded by deep forests. There, a deeply religious woman has married her beloved, but her mind and heart soon grow heavy as her life becomes a long list of chores and expectations. Day after day, she is increasingly trapped in a murky and lonely path leading to evil thoughts, until the possibility of committing a shocking act of violence seems like the only way out of her turmoil.”

The film stars Anja Plaschg, David Scheid, Maria Hofstätter, Camilla Schielin, and Lorenz Tröbinger.

“We are more than proud that our latest movie, ‘The Devil’s Bath,’ found a home at Shudder,” directors Franz and Fiala told Variety. “We greatly appreciate their love for a film that can’t be put into a box easily, a movie that tackles the horrors of depression and aims to give a voice to women who have been unheard throughout history.”

“Veronika and Severin are an incredible filmmaking duo that have been terrorizing audiences for years. With ‘The Devil’s Bath,’ they’ve delivered an utterly harrowing new vision,” said Emily Gotto, Shudder’s vice president of global acquisitions and co-productions. “We can’t wait to share this chilling, impactful film with Shudder members this summer.”

The Devil’s Bath is produced by Heimatfilm Productions and Ulrich Seidl Productions as a co-production with Heimatfilm and Coop99 Filmproduktion.

With the film set to premiere next week at Berlin Film Fest, we’ve got a few first look images at the upcoming horror film.
