Exorcism of the Dead: Indie director John Migliore releases trailer for his latest genre hybrid
If you dig on the living dead and still thrill to tales of Priests flushing out demons from bed-bound girls, may we suggest you eyeball director John Migliore’s latest shocker Exorcism of the Dead? Migliore chases his previous microbudget shockers Poltergeist Encounters and The Friday Night Death Slot with a film about demonic possession armed with a twist. Exorcism of the Dead explores the idea that death provides no escape from the forces of evil.
The film tells the story of Candace, a deeply troubled young woman who is possessed by an ambitious demon. Her family has tried every conventional method to heal her, but both medicine and psychology have failed. As a last resort, they reach out for aid from the church. They are unaware that the priest who arrives to deal with the situation has his own dark secrets.
Production on Exorcism of the Dead has now been completed and will hit the festival circuit this year before screaming onto video platforms. The film’s crew includes award-winning filmmakers Darren Hutchings (The Post-Lifers) and Deborah Jayne Reilly Smith (Away). Hutchings is the Director of Photography and Reilly Smith is a production assistant who also appears in the movie as Eunice. Juno Award-winning musician, Mike Trebilcock wrote the score for the film. Kyle Hytonen (Massacre at Femur Creek) recorded the sound.
Director John Migliore has also produced the online shows Partially Devoured Movies and The Midnight Movie Palace. This is his 4th feature film. His previous film, Poltergeist Encounters, will be released on DVD later this year by Wild Eye Releasing.
