"There's something in here. You can't see it. But… it lives inside." Neon has released an official trailer for an indie horror film titled It Lives Inside, from a filmmaker named Bishal Dutta making his first feature. It premiered at the 2023 SXSW Film Festival where it won the Midnight Audience Award. Sam is desperate to fit in at school, rejecting her Indian culture & family to be like everyone else. When a mythological demonic spirit latches onto her former best friend, she must come to terms with her heritage in order to defeat it. The initial inspiration for the film emerged from the filmmaker's own experience of being born in India, and raised in America. The story draws heavily on both Indian demonic legend and a very personal family story from Dutta's grandfather. This stars Megan Suri as Samidha, Neeru Bajwa, Mohana Krishnan, Betty Gabriel, Vik Sahay, and Gage Marsh. This looks creepy! Another great horror film coming up this year.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Bishal Dutta's It Lives Inside, direct from Noen's YouTube:
