Five days in the lives of an exorcist (Eloy Palma) and his granddaughter (Alba), working in the Barcelona area…
“The payoff at the end is pretty nice, too, so while your patience may be tested here and there at times, hey, at least it’s rewarded. No cheat, cop-out, or sideways manoeuvre is on offer when it comes time for Carrete to put his money where his mouth is, and in the world of horror, where we’re used to feeling ripped off or sold short, that’s very welcome indeed.” Trash Film Guru
“Carreté has created a film worth watching, but there’s nothing really begging to become a classic entry into the religious horror genre. A few spooks are achieved by demonic-looking patients and unexpected cohesion is achieved come Eloy’s holy fighting, but a lasting impression is hardly achieved, equal to getting buzzed off blessed wine.” We Got This Covered
Asmodexia had its world premiere at the Brussels Festival of Fantastic Films on April 19, 2014.
