New Stills and Release Date - Death of the Virgin
Dread Central is always on the lookout for intriguing new information to share with our readers. So when an email arrived informing us of a supernatural thriller that was the equivalent of "The DaVinci Code meets The Exorcist", of course we sat up and took notice.
The film being described is none other than director Joseph Tito's Death of the Virgin. It's been an official selection of the Toronto and Rome International Film Festivals. And if the trailer is any indication, this religious-themed horrific thriller certainly looks to be able to deliver on the whole DaVinci Code/Exorcist thing.
Starring Maria Grazia Cucinotta (Rite, The Postman (Il Postino), James Bond – The World is Not Enough), Daniel Baldock (Letters to Juliet, Pope Pius XII, Pillars of the Earth, Go Go Tales), Linda Valadas (Novellas Morangos Com Acucar, Detective Maravilhas, Tu E Eu) and Natasha Allan (Take Your Place (Prenez Vos Place), Blue Bird), >Death of the Virgin is now carrying a September 20 DVD release date.
But don't let me try to convince you; check out the rather graphic trailer below and decide for yourself.
In 1432 a stunning apparition of the Virgin Mary appeared in the sleepy town of Caravaggio, becoming the inspiration for the gruesome yet extraordinary paintings of the artist Michelangelo Merisi (better known as Caravaggio).
Now, in modern day 2011, three women travel to Caravaggio -- Lisa, an aspiring art student, Claudia, a sexy Italian translator and May, a young woman about to enter the nunnery. Their world turns upside down when the apparition reappears and poor May becomes plagued by premonitions of shocking murders.
Who will survive the terror of the supernatural as murders based on the paintings come true and the three women must discover an obscure secret to unlock a shocking destiny...
