With the Cannes market underway, expect a whole bunch of goodies to start trickling online (not that they haven’t already). Filmax International released a new piece of sales art for Exorcismus, completely negating the previously announced title change to The Possession of Emma Evans (maybe they realized it was stupid?). Directed by Manuel Carballo, and starring Tommy Bastow, Sophie Vavasseur, Richard Felix, Douglas Bradley and Stephen Billington, the film will explore the popular horror theme of exorcism, focusing on a young girl, Emma, whose erratic behavior forces her family to bring in a priest to try and resolve the problem through hypnosis. The disturbing results are recorded on a secret camera.“Fifteen-year-old Emma Hawkins is like any other teenage girl; she thinks that her parents don’t understand her. She longs for independence and a life free of family ties and responsibilities and she is prepared to do anything to achieve it. But one day she will be forced to face up to the consequences of her actions.
Life seems to be carrying on as normal, until one day Emma starts experiencing frightening fits. Her parents are convinced that her problems are either medical or psychological, but when doctors´ tests are unable to draw any conclusions, the family is forced to look elsewhere for answers.
It all started off as a bit of fun, Emma never really believed it, but the truth is there is something dark and sinister within her, and it won’t take long to surface.
