Filmmaker Michelle Garza Cervera’s feature directorial debut, Huesera: The Bone Woman, releases next month, and XYZ Films has shared a new trailer for the film. It is set for a theatrical U.S. release on February 10, and will follow on VOD February 16.
Huesera is a supernatural Mexican horror that follows Valeria (Natalia Solián), a young woman and expectant first-time mother who becomes cursed by a sinister entity. She’s soon thrust into a terrifying world where a group of witches may be her only chance to find safety and salvation. But it will come at a great risk.
The film held its world premiere at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival where it won the Best New Narrative Director and Nora Ephron awards. It continued to earn awards at international film festivals, including the Feature Film Audience award at Mexico’s Morelia International Film Festival.
Along with Solián, the cast includes Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Batalla, Mercedes Hernández, Aída López, and Martha Claudia Moreno. The screenplay was written by Cervera and Abia Castillo, and directed by Cervera. It is a Mexico-Peru co-production that was produced by Machete and Disruptiva in co-production with Señor Z, Maligno Gorehouse, IMCINE, Terminal, Simplemente, and Estudios Churubusco.
Huesera: The Bone Woman releases in theaters February 10 and will hit VOD beginning February 16. Watch the trailer below:
