Demonic possession spreads like a plague in a sinister, gothic road movie ….
An aging priest and his granddaughter Alba roam the darkest corners of Spain as travelling exorcists, violently exorcising children, mental patients and drug addicts of a malevolent infestation. They pass through desolate, sun-bleached landscapes and long-abandoned buildings, ridding the afflicted of this unholy epidemic while counting down the days to a mysterious resurrection.
Pursued by a cult with a shadowy agenda, the duo discover that a mystery from Alba’s past may hold the key to salvation … or open the door to an unspeakable evil.
The possessed become growling, body-convulsing monsters in director Marc Carreté's striking debut feature. Shot in 2013, the film uses abandoned locations, remnants of the troubled economy, as decaying backdrops for an eerie 'end of days' story.
Written and produced by Mike Hostench (BASKIN) and starring Irene Montala (PAINLESS) and Mireia Ros (REC 3: GENESIS), ASMODEXIA is yet another distinctive horror movie to emerge from the vibrant Spanish genre scene.
