Make room for a film shot in Barcelona as we got the Asmodexia trailer and poster.September seems to be the proving ground and warm-up to what is shaking up to be the most vile Halloween season ever in that there’s so many movies to look forward to watching. How has the time to watch all of them!?! I wanted to share a one of my picks for this month’s movie madness that is getting me excited for the most popular holiday next to Christmas!
Here’s the digs on the story:
Eloy de Palma is an exorcist pastor roaming the darkest corners of the country with his granddaughter Alba. Their mission is to help those possessed by The Evil One, an infection of the soul that is spreading fast, especially among the most vulnerable members of society: children, mental patients, and drug addicts. There is also a mysterious cult following them, making it more difficult to help those in need. Each exorcism is tougher than the one before, and every battle with Evil reveals a piece of young Alba’s forgotten past – an enigma that if unconcealed could change the world as we know it.
Marc Carreté debuts as this ambitious film’s writer/director and he was able to comes up with the this creative idea to blend the exorcism rites while linking it to the infamous 2012 Maya-predicted apocalypse. And it seems, by the reviews I’ve been reading, to work amist all the hype and exorcism movie re-vamps. In a review by Coventry from IMDB, I’m sold on on the story. Here’s more:
Asmodexia is an extremely tense thriller with a constantly grim atmosphere and an intelligent (albeit slightly too convoluted) screenplay. Several sequences (notably the ones shot inside the mental asylum) are disturbing and the finale is sublime and much more satisfying than any other exorcism-horror I’ve seen. The modestly budgeted film also benefices from slick and impressive camera-work and a moody soundtrack. There’s also a more than decent amount of shocks and bloodshed, for the sick puppies among us, and the acting performances are very adequate. If you choose to watch your next exorcism-horror film, why not make it this Spanish one?
The movie will be available on VOD September 26th and open in select theaters.
And here is the trailer…Creepy in any language:
