On a dark and rainy night, dazed and numb, young cabdriver Luz drags herself into the brightly lit entrance of a rundown police station. Meanwhile, in a nearby bar, Nora seductively engages police psychiatrist Dr. Rossini in a conversation about her old schoolmate Luz’s rebellious past. Little does the doctor know that Nora is possessed by a demonic entity that will stop at nothing to reclaim Luz , its one true love. Featuring a menacing synth score by Simon Waskow and shot immaculately on retro 16mm, Luz easily bests Hereditary as the creepiest and most enthralling possession flick of 2018.
“An effective exercise in stylistic pastiche that has more to offer than its eerie retro mood, Tilman Singer's Luz presents a refreshing take on demonic possession in which the usual fright-flick cliches are nowhere to be found.”
