Exclusive Clip! Loretta Devine holds Omari Hardwick captive in Spell

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Director Mark Tonderai's terrifying thriller SPELL is getting a Premium Video-On-Demand and Digital release on October 30th, courtesy of Paramount Home Entertainment. With the release of the film just a few days away, we have gotten our hands on an EXCLUSIVE clip – which you can check out above, along with the trailer!

The clip shows the bad news that comes before the horror really kicks in. The trailer gives an idea of just how bad things are going to get for the lead character, played by Omari Hardwick.

Scripted by EQUILIBRIUM's Kurt Wimmer (who also has a remake of Stephen King's CHILDREN OF THE CORN coming our way), SPELL has the following synopsis: 

While flying to his father’s funeral in rural Appalachia, an intense storm causes Marquis (Omari Hardwick) to lose control of the plane carrying him and his family.  He awakens wounded, alone and trapped in Ms. Eloise’s (Loretta Devine) attic, who claims she can nurse him back to health with the Boogity, a Hoodoo figure she has made from his blood and skin. Unable to call for help, Marquis desperately tries to outwit and break free from her dark magic and save his family from a sinister ritual before the rise of the blood moon.

That sounds like a good time to me, sort of a hoodoo magic twist on MISERY.  

Take a look at the clip and trailer, and get ready for SPELL which will be available on Premium Video-On-demand, Digital and in select theaters October 30.
