Christopher Smith‘s (Creep, Black Death, Detour) latest horror venture, Consecration – an original take on religious horror – is all set to release in theaters on February 10 before hitting VOD on March 3.
Directed by Smith, from a screenplay he co-wrote with Laurie Cook, and starring Jena Malone (Too Old To Die Young, The Neon Demon, Antebellum), Danny Huston (“Yellowstone”, Frankenstein), Dame Janet Suzman (“The Singing Detective”, Nicholas and Alexandra) and Thoren Ferguson (Matriarch), Consecration focuses on Grace (Malone) an accomplished ophthalmologist in London, who is summoned to Mount Saviour Convent deep in the Scottish Highlands following the sudden and mysterious death of her brother who was a priest. Refusing to believe
the convent’s insistence that he committed ‘suicide,’ and determined to discover what really happened to him, Grace starts her own investigation, uncovering murder, sacrilege and a disturbing truth about her own past.
Commenting on how he approached his latest venture in the horror genre, Smith said: “I wanted the film to have a classical style in one sense, in that you would take a modern, secular woman and take her back to the Middle Ages, both literally and metaphorically in the story”.
Consecration releases exclusively in theaters on February 10 before heading to VOD on March 3, 2023. We’ll leave you with the official trailer below which we’re sure will spark your anticipation.
