Patasola, known in South American folklore as a vampiric monster that appears out of the wilderness when male hunters or loggers start to think about women, is enough to have us sprinting in fear. That is if, according to the folklore, Patasola didn’t take on a luring appearance only to reveal its hideous true form as soon as it’s too late. Thrilling and horrific, right? Which is exactly the tone the producers of the indie-horror film The Curse of La Patasola aim to capture.

La Patasola follows two struggling couples who are haunted by the famed monster, testing their relationships, morality, and will to survive. The film marks the directorial debut of actor/writer AJ Jones (Lovecraft Country), with a story co-created by Jones and Florida native Daniela Gonzalez (Frenemies). The film also stars Luciana Faulhaber (Shades of Blue), Patrick R. Walker (The Resident), Najah Bradley (Black Box), and Gillie Jones (Mr. Frost). Rounding out the cast is Jack Young (The Perfect Race) and Mark Pettit (True Detective).


The original score of the movie was developed by Kelsey woods and Broadway actress and songwriter Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer wrote and performed The Curse of La Patasola’s theme song.

Eerie Sounds From The Wilderness

“The Curse of La Patasola is a character-driven thriller that we feel is going to appeal to a wide audience,” said Tony Piantedosi, SVP of Acquisitions at Vertical Entertainment, who has just secured the rights to distribute the indie-thriller across North America. “We were drawn to the story, mythology, and the way the monster was brought to life — and think fans are really going to enjoy this film.”

Tom Malloy, President of Glass House Distribution commented, “Now that Vertical Entertainment has signed on as our distribution partner in North America, we’re confident the dominos will fall around the world and The Curse of La Patasola will be enjoyed by a global audience in 2022.”

Vertical’s past successes include Channing Godfrey Peoples’ Miss Juneteenth, starring Nicole Beharie in her Best Actress Gotham Independent Film Award-winning performance, and Best Picture Golden Globe Award nominee Music, directed by Sia and starring Best Actress Golden Globe Award winner Kate Hudson. Aiming to continue the success, The Curse of La Patasola is scheduled to hit theaters in 10 major markets and will be available across streaming media and other platforms on January 14, 2022.
