Brigitte Kali Canales is reverting to her old ways…
The first trailer has been released for the Sitges Film Festival horror The Old Ways, starring the Mexican, Cuban and Spanish American actress.
The film follows Cristina Lopez, a Mexican American reporter who returns to her ancestral homeland of Veracruz chasing a story on witchcraft and faith healers. But Lopez becomes the subject of her own story, kidnapped by a local “bruja” and her son.
In addition to Canales, the film also stars Andrea Cortés, Julia Vera, Sal Lopez and AJ Bowen.
Christopher Alender directs from a script by Marcos Gabriel.
The English and Spanish-language movie will get its world premiere at the festival.
The Old Ways has been picked up for sales by genre specialist XYZ Films.
Canales’ previous credits include Baby Driver and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
