French Horror Film Pandemonium Makes it’s US Premiere at Screamfest

The macabre horror film Pandemonium is set to make its US premiere at the upcoming Screamfest LA on October 14th, after originally premiering at Neuchâtel and garnering acclaim at international festivals including Fantasia, Frightfest, Sitges, Grimmfest, and Trieste. Directed by Quarxx, Pandemonium is a multi-layered existential fantasy topped with signature notes of visceral horror, disturbing fairy tales, wry comedy, and dark thriller.

The film follows Nathan (Hugo Dillon), an ordinary man on a journey he never expected. After realizing he has died at the scene of a car crash, Nathan descends into the depths of hell, where he is doomed to experience the pain of tortured souls along the way.

Drawing direct inspiration from Dante’s Inferno and Milton’s Paradise Lost, Pandemonium reimagines the allegorical descent into hell with a macabre tone. The film’s twisted vision of the underworld circles and torments evokes Dante’s epic poem, while the themes of morality, temptation, and the fallen state of man are reminiscent of Milton’s legendary work. These literary influences shape the imaginative, nightmarish setting and philosophical undertones.

Check out the trailer for Pandemonium below:

Starring Hugo Dillon, Pandemonium was produced by Isabelle Guenezan of Transgressive Production and executive producer Martine Melloul of Kali Pictures. This imaginative horror tale will premiere for fans when it makes its US debut at Screamfest LA.

Pandemonium will screen at the TCL Chinese Theatre, in Screen 6 on Saturday, October 14 at 7:30 PM PST during Screamfest LA.

Tickets for the screening can be purchased through the Screamfest LA website.
