In writer-director Anita Rocha da Silveira’s genre-bending horror, 21-year-old Mariana (Mari Oliveira) is a member of a repressive patriarchal Christian sect who, along with her girlfriends, cultivate the image of the perfect woman.

But by night, they don masks to become a brutal vigilante gang, mercilessly prowling the city for women they deem to be sinners. When an altercation goes violently wrong, deadly tensions emerge between Mariana and her pious sisters.

An electrifying assault on the senses, Medusa is a nightmarish psychological thriller inspired by the work of David Lynch and Dario Argento.
