Word’s coming in that The Crypt is finally completed and will have its premiere on March 1st at the Fantasporto International Film Festival in Porto, Portugal, where it’s an official selection for the competition. To celebrate, we have a new behind-the-scenes still and one-sheet for you!
The Crypt is billed as an homage to the 70’s box office phenomenon The Exorcist. It’s a modern retelling of the classic tale for today’s youth that includes all the elements of social media and is available in 3D for a fun-filled night of scary entertainment.
Check out the goods below after the synopsis.
It’s Saturday night, and two partying teens looking for a little excitement take their dates down to the crypt of a 15th century convent. With video camera in hand, the boys are out to show the girls a good time and create their own YouTube sensation. Things go wrong from the start as the teens find themselves trapped in the catacombs of the convent. The tombs have their own history, and the teens are faced with the demons that rule the underworld.
The next day the teens’ dead bodies are found, and a police investigation begins. Left behind and discovered by church officials is the video recorder, which is the evidence that sets into motion a clandestine effort by the clergy to conceal what actually happened.
Called into service is a special member of the church. Brought in from Rome, his job is to rid the convent of its demons by performing an exorcism. Things get even scarier when the “specialist” himself becomes possessed. The demons now appear unstoppable.
