Auxilio is a 2023 Argentinian horror film about a defiant, rebellious young woman who is sent to a convent where paranormal forces exist. Also known as Auxilio – The Power of Sin and Help.

Written and directed by Tamae Garateguy (She Wolf). Produced by Daniel de la Vega and Néstor Sánchez Sotelo.

The Del Toro Films-Furia Films-Red Vector Productions movie stars Cumelen Sanz, Gerardo Romano, Martina Garello, Germán Baudino, Marcela Benjumea and Paula Carruega.


1931. Emilia (Cumelen Sanz), a free-thinking and defiant young woman, is sent by her father to a convent for refusing to marry a gnarly old general.


Emilia’s arrival unleashes paranormal manifestations in the place, which become increasingly strong for all the residents, religious and mentally ill women confined, but even more for Emilia, like a cry for help which is impossible to ignore…


Festival blurb:
“The film skillfully weaves elements of the occult through a feminist lens.” Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN)


“Stunningly visualised, subtly played, smartly scripted, and yet utterly savage, it’s a film that will shock, disturb, provoke, and challenge.” Grimmfest



“Production values are high throughout as you’d expect and the cinematography is top-notch. The use of lighting and the natural beauty of the convent building make for some spectacular and gorgeous shots. It’s definitely a slow-burn and can be pretty artsy at times, but if you stick with it […] Auxilio is a fascinating watch and mesmerizing experience.” ★★★½ The Scariest Things
