With The Last Exorcism hitting theatres this weekend, a trailer for a similar themed horror movie has found its way online, Exorcismus (La posesión de Emma Evans). The Spanish horror film, produced by the makers of the very popular [REC] series makes use of the found footage conceit , a sub genre which has time and time again please critics, surprised audiences and delivered big box office numbers. Here is the synopsis:
Fifteen-year-old Emma Evans 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.
With the film now preparing to launch on the festival circuit, production company Filmax have been good enough to give us a first look at the trailer.
