Holy Terror (2017) - Horror Film News and Trailer
From the team behind Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance comes Holy Terror, an exorcism film going for a 70's vibe. It is written and directed by Rich Mallery (Sociopathia), and stars Kristine DeBell, Mel Novak (Game of Death), Lisa London, Kelly Reiter (The Z Virus), Jesse Hlubik (All Cheerleaders Die), Nicole Olson, Scott Butler, and Vida Ghaffari.
Molly (Reiter) and Tom (Hlubik) believing strange occurrences in their house are the result of their dead child trying to make contact hire a spirit medium (London) to reach him. However instead the trio unwittingly summon a demon who possesses Molly's sister (Olson). A disgraced priest (Butler) and his mentor (DeBell) are then tasked with performing an exorcism to banish this dangerous being.
I have a lot of time for exorcism films, I enjoy the mix of horror with religious imagery, and the battle of wits, rather than strength that occurs between the evil force and the exorcist. Citing The Exorcist, The Changeling, and The Amityville Horror as big influences Mallery states:
"There has been a resurgence of exorcism/possession-type movies, so it's a little challenging to give audiences something they haven't seen before. But we have a few tricks up our sleeve that are going to make Holy Terror stand apart from the crowd."
Check out the trailer below and see what you think, hopefully it will turn out to be good. Holy Terror is going to premiere this April on Amazon Prime.
