It's been a couple of months since last seeing a promo quad-poster for Dominik Moll's THE MONK, which stars the awfully portentous looking Vincent Cassel. I for one am loving the look and sound of this project, so it comes with unmitigated zeal that I bring you a whole bank of new stills from the period-thriller. Simply scroll to see what we have...

Adapted from Matthew Lewis' novel by Moll and Anne-Louise Trividic -THE MONK recounts the diabolical decline of Ambrosio (Cassel), a Capuchin superior, who succumbs first to temptations offered by a young girl who has entered his monastery disguised as a boy, and continues his descent with increasingly depraved acts of sorcery, murder, incest and torture. Combining sensationalism with acute psychological insight, this masterpiece of Gothic fiction is a powerful exploration of how violent and erotic impulses can break through the barriers of social and moral restraint.

Geraldine Chaplin, Deborah Francois, Sergi Lopez, Roxane Duran, Jordi Dauder, Catherine Mouchet, Javivi and Josephine Japy all assume a role in the film.

THE MONK (LE MOINE) hits Spain June 24th, then France July 13th. We'll let you know when it goes wider.
