Exorcism horror ASMODEXIA on DVD 28 March 2016
"... will chill you to the bone ..." Dread Central
"... wonderfully blasphemous ..." UK Horror Scene
Demonic possession spreads like a plague in a sinister, gothic road movie ….
From the disturbing opening scenes of a possessed mother giving birth, to the gruesome revelations in a grimy mental asylum, ASMODEXIA draws from occult classics THE EXORCIST, ROSEMARY’S BABY and Spanish horror franchise REC, but brings a dramatic new twist to the exorcism sub-genre.
Travelling exorcists battle dark forces in a macabre tale of horrifying possession, religious extremism and paranoia that builds to a shocking finale. Released on UK DVD on 28 March 2016, ASMODEXIA is yet another distinctive horror movie to emerge from the vibrant Spanish genre scene.
An aging priest and his granddaughter Alba roam the darkest corners of Spain as travelling exorcists, violently exorcising children, mental patients and drug addicts of a malevolent infestation. They pass through desolate, sun-bleached landscapes and long-abandoned buildings, ridding the afflicted of this unholy epidemic while counting down the days to a mysterious resurrection.
Pursued by a shadowy cult with a sinister agenda, the duo discover that a mystery from Alba’s past may hold the key to salvation … or open the door to an unspeakable evil.
