‘Frontier(s)’ Director Teams With ‘Conjuring’ Producer For ‘The Crucifixion’!

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 is to be penned by The Conjuring writers Chad and Carey Hayes, Bloody Disgusting learned out of the ongoing AFM in Santa Monica.

Based on 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.

Peter Safran (Annabelle, The Conjuring) and the Hayes brothers will produce, with Lotus Entertainment’s Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, D.J. Gugenheim and Ara Keshishian executive producing. Lotus will handle international sales and introduce to buyers at AFM.

    Xavier Gens is a very underrated director. I absolutely adored Frontiers and loved The Divide too! I put my trust in him 🙂

    FRONTIERS was awesome! Karina Testa (as Yasmine) gave an incredible performance in it. possession films are a dime a dozen but i hope Gens can bring us something special/unique. i have faith he can and will!
