‘God’s Not Dead‘ Filmmakers Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman Talk Their New Film ‘Nefarious‘ in Theaters Friday, April 14, 2023.
‘Nafarious’ Tag Line:
On the day of his scheduled execution, a convicted serial killer gets a psychiatric evaluation during which he claims he is a demon, and further claims that before their time is over, the psychiatrist will commit three murders of his own.
Known for their ‘God’s Not Dead‘ franchise, filmmakers Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman face off with the devil in their latest thriller, ‘Nefarious‘ starring Jordan Belfi as psychiatrist Dr. James Martin and Sean Patrick Flannery as the serial killer who identifies himself by the name Nefarious.
Shot in a little over two weeks, the ‘Nefarious‘ faced some supernatural events during the short shooting schedule. Belfi became a father 30-minutes before filming began, their exorcist priest who was to bless the set nearly died on set and a whole host of other demonic entities were trying to stop the production of this movie from being completed.
However, Solomon and Konzelman remained true to their faith and forced forward continuing with the movie based on the novels by Steve Deace, ‘A Nefarious Plot‘, which was released in 2016, and ‘A Nefarious Carol‘, released in 2020.
Playing out like a stage play, ‘Nefarious‘ challenges the viewers own nihilistic ideologies as Dr. Martin must come to terms with the notion that evil may truly exist and that something can be the cause of it besides man’s own human tendencies.
Solomon and Konzelman discuss how ‘Nefarious‘ could transition into a stage page after its initial theatrical run in nearly 1,000 theaters, opening on Friday, April 14, 2023 on the Julian Calendar Good Friday, still used by the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches.
‘Nefarious‘ is a film that does not preach to the audience. What it does allow for is a dialogue on the topic of good and evil to be discusses between its viewers.
