‘The Crucifixion’ Possesses Home Video This December

One of my all-time favorite film festival experiences was seeing Xavier Gens’ Frontier(s) twice at the Toronto International Film Festival. The movie was a blast from the past, an action-packed gore-fest that was inspired by The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Gens, who also helmed The Divide, is returning to horror with the thriller The Crucifixion, which was penned by The Conjuring writers Chad and Carey Hayes. Already On Demand, Lionsgate will release on  Blu-ray, DVD and Digital December 5, 2017. Extras include “The Crucifixion: The Director’s Vision” Featurette and a trailer gallery.

Inspired by true events, “When a priest is jailed for the murder of a nun on whom he was performing an exorcism, an investigative journalist strives to determine whether he in fact murdered a mentally ill person, or if he lost the battle with a demonic presence.” Sophie Cookson (Kingsman) stars with Brittany Ashworth.

The film premiered at last October’s Screamfest Film Festival in Los Angeles.

Peter Safran (Annabelle, The Conjuring) and the Hayes brothers produced The Crucifixion, with Lotus Entertainment’s Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, D.J. Gugenheim and Ara Keshishian executive producing.

      It’s not. It’s typical of this sub-genre these days. Watch The Exorcist TV Series. If you haven’t seen it you may appreciate the tip.

      The Crucifixion has nothing really to recommend it, I’m sad to say, as I was looking forward to watching it.

        The lead girl is very good. Romanian priest is also quite ok. Creepy boy….and nothing more really. It seems like Gens is name to forget.

          The Exorcist has its moments but, to this jaded horror fan, it’s not scary. However, it is very well written, well directed with interesting characters and a compelling (excuse the pun) story. Season 2 is even better. I can’t recommend it more highly.
