A black knight descends through the entrance to a dungeon. He is armed with his faithful sword and a torch to light his way. Deep in the throat of the dungeon, a cursed relic waits to be rescued ... an artefact capable of bringing to life its band of brothers, fallen in combat.
In 2018, the 12th edition of the Lisbon horror festival allows a trip to the realm of medieval fantasy; of cloak and sword, of magic and, of course, of dreadful terror.
An atmosphere of pulp adventure, which will drink from films like Sam Raimi's "Dark Army", and creatures that might have been taken from a Ray Harryhausen movie.
Stand up brothers! MOTELX has arrived!
