Asudem is an American horror film written and directed by Daryush Shokof. Asudem is the reverse writing of Medusa which is a word created by Shokof with which he also made artworks under the same title. The film indicates a surreal story of a woman Yangzom Brauen in the woods before meeting the devil, experiencing a heavenly vision after consuming hallucinogenic mushrooms. The film is shot in black and white and entirely in Berlin, Germany. The concept behind the creation of the new word Asudem is described by Shokof that he believes the real evil is not the head of a human being covered and poisoned by most poisonous snakes but rather that the real horror is the defenseless snakes heads that are covered by evil heads of most dangerous and poisonous human beings driving the snakes into madness.
The location, setting, and compositions of the film are similar with most other films by Daryush Shokof in which the location, situation or both is confined to one place with universal elements as if it could be any place on earth.
The film begins with a woman hiding in a destroyed train station during a war. The woman confronts strange happenings throughout the film as the intensity of the incidents increase in danger until she finally meets the devil, who wants to finish her off, so she decides to feed the devil mushrooms in the woods, so he would have heavenly visions to suffocate him to death.
