“Reyes”: First Trailer Released for German Occult Thriller

We have got the first trailer for the German occult thriller Reyes, which is currently finishing up production. Produced by Uprise Pictures and co-directed by Patrick Templin and René Wiesner, it tells the tale of Mick (Kim Sønderholm), a not-so-successful author returns to his hometown to look for ideas for his next book. He gets more than he bargained for when he run across death cult with ties to Día de Muertos, the Mexican Day of the Dead. Here is a look at the trailer:

The film also stars Bill Hutchens (Human Centipede 2 (2011), Human Centipede 3 (2015)), Shawn C. Phillips (Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High Aka Vol. 2 (2017)), Antonio Monroi (Apocalypto (2006)), Patrick Jahns (Bunker of The Dead (2015)), Peter Ahlers (Skatecop (2017)), Dietrich Kuhlbrodt,  and Aileen Dankyi-Sampong.

Reyes - sacrifice
A sacrifice is prepared.

The filmmakers promise that it is quite gory and features occult rituals and human sacrifice, some of which is touched on in the trailer. They promise that “it is going to be a thrill ride, very far from PG13 rating!” The trailer also seems to have a bit of a neo-noir feel to it, in parts. If they can marry noir and occult genres, it could prove to be pretty interesting. The film is currently finishing up production, so we will have to keep our eyes out for a release date.
