Investigate Satanic rituals in this Regression clip

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

In this clip from Alejandro Amenábar's REGRESSION, Ethan Hawke listens to a clip of Emma Watson's testimony while exploring the crime scene, recreating it in his head like he thinks he's Will Graham in Hannibal. It's a pretty spooky scene, and an interesting look at the Satanic panic of the early 80's. Check it out below!

REGRESSION is set in a small Minnesota town in 1980 where a man is arrested for sexually abusing his daughter. He admits his guilt despite having no memory of it. With the help of a psychologist, he relives the memories and implicates a police officer as his partner in crime. The man’s estranged son and other townspeople are also suddenly able to relive suppressed memories of horrific abuse.

At the same time, the local news reports blame a Satanic cult that has been performing rituals of orgies, assault, killing animals and even babies, for years. The officers are alarmed when similar reports come in from all around the country—they believe they’ve uncovered a national and possibly supernatural conspiracy. Is the abuse real, or something else?

REGRESSION, also starring David Dencik and David Thewlis, will progress into theaters in Spain on October 2nd, the United Kingdom on October 9th, and Canada on October 30th. So you're in luck if you're outside the U.S. We're still waiting on an official release over here. You'll hear from us as soon as we find out!
