Argentinean Gonzalo Calzada directs a visually explosive film where religion, innocence, repressed sexuality and evil spectacularly collide. Natalia is a 19-year-old novice who reluctantly returns home to say goodbye to her dying father. But when she meets up with her sister and her friends, she decides instead to travel the jungle in search of mystical plant. There, instead of pleasure, they find a world of Black Masses, strange pregnancies, bloody deaths and for the nun herself, a sexually violent clash with the Devil himself.

Philadelphia’s Own Distribution Company,
Artsploitation Films Offers Best In Foreign Movies
The Philadelphia based movie distribution company ARTSPLOITATION FILMS is doing amazing things! You wouldn’t think much of this little building on North Hancock, but they are offering the BEST foreign movies in the world right now.
Unlike most film distribution companies, the name of our company describes the kinds of films we are looking to distribute. Artsploitation connotes – to me anyway – that perfect blend of genre/exploitation films with traditional art cinema. We are far from a horror film distributor – that’s too easy! We look for odd, challenging, fun, even difficult films – some are more art than genre and others are just genre fun but they all share in common an approach to filmmaking that we love.
So be they international thrillers, blood-spurting horror, art house dramas or just plain weird and wonderful, they are all part of the Artsploitation Films family. You may not like all of what we present but we hope you’ll be at least be intrigued into watching one of our offerings.– Raymond Murray, President

Artsploitation on PINTEREST had just updated it's Gallery with Exclusive Pictures from CHRISTMAS BLOOD and SNOWFLAKE.
“Snowflake takes all the Grimm Fairy Tales familiar elements and turns them on their head. Without a doubt, this film’s strongest asset is its inventive premise. Characters destinies are constantly being altered by an author who is composing a screenplay as the story unfolds. And this gives the film an anything can happen vibe that greatly works to its advantage. From a production standpoint, there is not an area where this film does not deliver and then some. The well-constructed narrative moves along at a brisk moment and there is rarely a moment to your breath. The characters are well-defined and their motivations are never in doubt. Performance wise the cast are all very good in their respective roles. Ultimately, Snowflake is a modern-day return to Fairy Tales with a more sinister tone.” – 10kbullets
“In the tonal vein of Guy Ritchie or Quentin Tarantino, Germany’s Snowflake brings an ensemble of insanity to the viewer. It channels multiple plotlines in a hyper-stylish what-the-fuck of filmmaking. It does a little reality bending, too, going meta with the first oddball story it introduces. Both crime and horror violence share screen time with the film’s sense of humor, the blood and chuckles frequently overlapping, The eclectic ensemble of plots and people and textures is an embarrassment of riches. Snowflake knows how to navigate around its maze of meta mind-fuckery. It ably keeps the viewer on its toes and in suspense rather than confused and befuddled. – FilmPhreak
“A genre-bending, boundary-pushing mash-up that is as unique and totally original a movie you’ll see this year and maybe this decade. This is the kind of movie that Quentin Tarantino would love. The performances are solid throughout. The humor here is biting and sometimes jarring and even whimsical and the action is well-staged. This is easily one of the best films of the year and one I would recommend to any film lover anywhere.” – Cinema365
“Christmas Blood feels like Se7en, Halloween, and Black Christmas had a love child that was raised in the bleakest region of Norway. The movie feels like a cold snowy night and that is perfect. There is plenty to like about this movie. …would I recommend this movie? You bet your jingle bells I would! – TennesseeHorror
