The blood flower, Asclepias curassavica, exists, but although it's known as the cattle killer, it's neither as dangerous nor as bloody as the specimen growing in the greenhouse of a man with too much dark power. We know him. We, who in the gang (or rather on the margins), have one with powers. Powers to heal. And to expel demons. His mother also had them, but… His father knew it. In fact, he took both of them to the sessions… We are in Malaysia. And so the setting is hot, humid, sweaty, sticky, dense. Directed by Dain Said, already a regular at the leading fantasy festivals with Interchange (2016), another viscous thriller. Said loves Bresson, Antonioni, and the creatures concealed in the dark pools of Southeast Asia.
