The Spanish-language thriller ASMODEXIA, from director Marc Carreté, has just possessed us with a new trailer in which we see a very traditional looking demonic setup, but with a small twist. Where it switches things up is that instead of focusing on just one person who is in serious need of an exorcist, it instead follows a pastor and his granddaughter as they search all of Spain for those afflicted with a dark entity known as "The Evil One". I really dig where this one is headed because it allows the film to explore even the darkest corners of those possessed. The trailer offers more than a few chills, as well as some downright terrifying imagery that will no doubt leave an impression on the genre. See it for yourselves below!
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.
We have yet to hear of a date for ASMODEXIA but we'll be sure to hit you folks with that news once we get it. Hopefully this trailer will hold you over until then!
