Goodnight Mommy and The Lodge directors Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala know how to get under your skin with their harrowing tales. Their newest film goes back in time to evoke that same sense of dread. The Devil’s Bath follows a woman in 1750s Austria who commits a horrible act to be freed from her isolated life. It had its world premiere at Berlinale this year and will screen at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival. Ahead of its U.S. release this month, the official trailer has arrived courtesy of Shudder.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In 1750 Austria, a deeply religious woman named Agnes has just married her beloved, but her mind and heart soon grow heavy as her life becomes a long list of chores and expectations. Day after day, she is increasingly trapped in a murky and lonely path leading to evil thoughts, until the possibility of committing a shocking act of violence seems like the only way out of her inner prison. Giving a voice to the invisible and unheard women of the rural past; THE DEVIL’S BATH is based on historical court records about a shocking, hitherto unexplored chapter of European history.

The Devil’s Bath opens at IFC Center on June 21 and arrives on Shudder June 28.
