Directed by Mahmoud Kamel, the new horror Ammar will have its world premiere during the upcoming Cairo International Film Festival (2-10 December), where it will be screened within the festival's Midnight Screenings section.

Nilewood, the film's production company, has also revealed the film's official poster.

The poster shows bodies submerged underwater along with a musical instrument and a mannequin. Overlooking the water is the facade of an inconspicuous villa, with a dim light emitting from its windows, and all of this is surrounded by a dark background.

According to the brief provided by MAD Solutions, the film's distributing company, Ammar presents "a misfortunate family, a couple with three children, which moves to the Gharibs' Castle as their new house. Their excitement soon wears off when the house swallows them one after the other, taking them to a horrifying world of past crimes that took place within its walls…or maybe these cursed walls are behind these crimes."

Directed by Mahmoud Kamel, and co-written by Ahmed Al-Dahan and Haitham Al-Dahan, Ammar stars Sherif Salama and Eman El-Assi.
