Spanish exorcism horror Asmodexia on DVD in March

13 February 2016

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 shadowy cult with a sinister 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.

From the disturbing opening scenes of a possessed mother giving birth, to the gruesome revelations in a grimy mental asylum, Asmodexia draws from occult classics The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby and Spanish horror franchise REC, but brings a new twist to the exorcism sub-genre.

Directed by Marc Carreté and described by UK Horror Scene as "wonderfully blasphemous" and Dread Central as a film that "will chill you to the bone," Asmodexia will be released on UK DVD on 28 March 2016 by Sharp Teeth Films at the RRP of £12.99.

Special features have yet to be confirmed.
