Lionsgate/Pantelion Films have released a trailer and one-sheet for biblical horror thriller The Vatican Tapes, and I have to say it looks pretty intense. The film stars Michael Pena, Dougray Scott, John Patrick Amedori, Djimon Hounsou, and Olivia Taylor Dudley, and is directed by Mark Neveldine. I don’t usually watch these types of movies, and possession movies are rarely great with very few exceptions, but this one I’ll be checking out for sure.
Here’s the official synopsis:
THE VATICAN TAPES follows the ultimate battle between good and evil – God versus Satan. Angela Holmes (OLIVIA TAYLOR DUDLEY) is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It’s all up to Father Lozano (MICHAEL PEÑA) to wage war for more than just Angela’s soul, but for the world as we know it.
The Vatican Tapes hits theaters on July 24th (My birthday, if you were wondering) 2015
