Possession movies seem to be on the rise as of late, but you know we ain’t hating that here at Slack Jaw Punks. Written by Marc Carreté and Mike Hostench it is a spanish language film set in Spain. I’ll be honest watching the trailer brought me back to my days in a Hospital in Barcelona, sleeping all day, organized activities, horrible food, and I only made $5 an hour caring for those people. One thing good did come out of it though, my mom learned the hard way what happens if I don’t get a snack pack. It will also be Carrete’s feature length directing debut. All joking aside I’m digging this trailer. Marc Carreté has directed two shorts, but this will be his first feature length film. So I’m putting this film on Jake Watch 2014, yes I just made that it up. Hell this Hasselhoff costume isn’t going to pay for itself. IFC Midnight picked up the U.S. distribution in June and Asmodexia will be hitting select theatres and VOD September 26th, 2014.
ASMODEXIA concerns Eloy de Palma, 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.
