The newest film to tackle the exorcism sub genre, THE VATICAN TAPES follows a priest and two Vatican exorcists to fight for a young girl’s soul. Looking at director Mark Neveldine’s film resume, titles like CRANK, GAMER, and GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE pop up, which makes me think that this take on the subject that THE EXORCIST made popular so many moons ago will probably feature a plethora of action and suspense. Here’s hoping it’s a fun ride.
Directed by Mark Neveldine, the cast for THE VATICAN TAPES includes Olivia Taylor Dudley,Michael Peña, Djimon Housou, and Dougray Scott.
Here’s the synopsis:
“THE VATICAN TAPES follows the ultimate battle between good and evil- God versus Satan. Angela Holmes 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.”
