Plot:

On a weekend camping trip, two struggling couples are haunted by La Patasola, an infamous vampiric female monster from Amazonian folklore, testing their relationships, morality, and their will to survive…

Background:

According to Wikipedia, the Patasola or “one foot” is one of many myths in South American folklore about female monsters from the jungle, appearing to male hunters or loggers in the middle of the wilderness when they think about women. The Patasola appears in the form of a beautiful and seductive woman, often in the likeness of a loved one, who lures a man away from his companions deep into the jungle. There, the Patasola reveals her true, hideous appearance as a one-legged creature with ferocious vampire-like lust for human flesh and blood, attacking and devouring the flesh or sucking the blood of her victims.

Release:

In post-production, La Patasola will be released around Halloween 2021 by Glass House Distribution.
