From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated Persepolis and the mind of renowned graphic novelist Jacques Tardi comes a riveting sci-fi adventure set in an alternate steampunk universe!
Paris, 1941. A family of scientists is on the brink of discovering a powerful longevity serum when all of a sudden a mysterious force abducts them, leaving their young daughter April behind. Ten years later, April (voiced by Academy Award® nominee Marion Cotillard) lives alone with her dear cat, Darwin, and carries on her family’s research in secret. But she soon finds herself at the center of a shadowy and far-reaching conspiracy, and on the run from government agents, bicycle-powered dirigibles and cyborg rat spies.

FROM THE ACCLAIMED DIRECTOR OF THE YELLOW SEA!
In this unbelievably tense supernatural thriller, a foreigner’s mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals - suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as the townspeople begin killing each other in brutal outbursts for seemingly no reason. As the investigating officer watches his daughter fall under the same savage spell, he agrees to consult a shaman for answers - unknowingly escalating the situation into something far more dangerous.
“A Hell of a ride” - Mark Jenkins, NPR
“The rare commercial thriller whose feverish manipulations can't be dismissed as merely callous or exploitative.” - Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
“Like the most gruesome and gripping Scandinavian crime drama you can imagine, transported to a rain-sodden Asian backwater where everyone's in a bad mood and science, religion and superstition are locked in uneasy combat.” - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
“Swirling an air of majesty, The Wailing is poetry in motion - if your prose were full of mangled corpses, undead spirits, and tales of sinister takeovers.” - Matt Donato, We Got This Covered

SATANIC follows a van full of young, college-aged coeds who are visiting old Satanic Panic-era sites in Los Angeles. They end up following the creepy owner of an occult store home, only to find themselves saving a suspicious girl from an apparent human sacrifice. Only this “victim” turns out to be much more than dangerous then the cult from which she escaped.
