Enter the terrifying world of “The Vatican Tapes.” From the filmmakers of the hit “The Exorcism of Emily Rose,” Horror-thriller “The Vatican Tapes” dives into a modern day story of good and evil, while exploring the devastating and widespread consequences of a demonic possession.
“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 Peῆa) to wage war for more than just Angela’s soul, but for the world as we know it. The film also stars Djimon Hounsou.
“This is a story about an ordinary girl, Angela,” says director, Mark Neveldine. “She descends into a dark hole where terrifying things start to happen, but no one can figure out the cause of it. As horrifying incidents escalate, we find out that Angela’s body has been consumed by the anti-Christ.”
Lakeshore’s President and film producer Gary Lucchesi adds: “The big idea of The Vatican Tapes is that in a secret vault in the Vatican, there is an immense library that chronicles all of the possession incidents since the beginning of the Catholic faith.”
“It’s a modern film about a woman who is consumed by demonic possession. People around her try to help her, and they try to treat her unknown condition,” says screenwriter, Christopher Borrelli. “Then at a certain point in the film, the priests and doctors realize that they’re dealing with a demon.”
“The devil is here,” sums up Lakeshore Entertainment’s Chairman and CEO, Tom Rosenberg. “The Vatican Tapes” opens July 22 in cinemas (Philippines) nationwide from Pioneer Films.
