Evil thrives in small towns as evident by Eli Roth and Jason Blum's upcoming horror series 'South Of Hell' for WeTV. The supernatural horror series premieres on November 27th as a binge watch, marathon viewing showdown between good and evil! I am excited to see how the Eli Roth of 'Hemlock Grove' , a more Gothic gore series, and films like "Hostel" and "The Green Inferno", translates to the WeTV audience. I for one will be watching!
'South Of Hell' is a supernatural thriller set in South Carolina, South Of Hell focuses on Maria Abascal (Suvari), a stunning demon-hunter-for-hire whose power stems from within. Like those she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover how far Abigail will go to remain a part of her.
Eli Roth is director of the first episode but some pretty awesome indie power hitters are attached for the other Director's chairs on 'South Of Hell'. Ti West, Rachel Talalay, Jennifer Lynch and Jeremiah Chechik have all packed their bags for a little excursion into Hell. The cast includes Mena Suvari, Zachary Booth, Bill Irwin as Enos Abascal, Maria and David’s father and cult leader; Drew Moerlein as Dusty, Maria’s neighbor; Lamman Rucker as Rev. Elijah Bledsoe, a priest with a strong attraction to Maria; Paulina Singer as the Reverend’s daughter, Grace; Lydia Hearst as southern belle Charlotte Roberts; Slate Holmgren as the local drug dealer, Sweetmouth; and Lauren Velez as Tetra, a spiritual informant.
