‘Blessed be the curse’
is a forthcoming British-American horror film about a woman that travels to Scotland to investigate the suspicious death of her brother, a priest.

Directed by Christopher Smith (The Banishing; TriangleSeveranceCreep) from a screenplay co-written with Laurie Cook. The latter and Jason Newmark of Bigscope Films are producing Consecration alongside Xavier Marchand (The Ritual; The Woman in Black 2) of Moonriver Content. Stuart Ford’s AGC Studios provided the financing and also co-produce.

The movie stars Jena Malone, Danny Huston, Ian Pirie, Janet Suzman, Steffan Cennydd, Eilidh Fisher, Angela White, Thoren Ferguson, Victoria Donovan, Charlotte Palmer, Jolade Obasola, David Boyle, Alexandra Lewis, Kit Rakusen, Marilyn O’Brien, Michael Brophy, Emma Hixson, Daisy Allen and Rachael Joanne Brown.

Grace is a woman who travels to Mount Saviour Convent in Scotland to investigate the suspicious death of her brother, a priest. Once there, she uncovers murder, sacrilege and a disturbing truth about her own past…


Director Christopher Smith enthused that the film is “about the nature of religion and how defining one thing as divine creates a false opposite that is heretical.” He added: “This film is an opportunity to take the audience on a thrilling journey into the dark unknown, and I want to really push that to the limit both in terms of scares and the psychology of the main characters. I’ve learnt so much about making genre films over the years, and I want Consecration to be the scariest yet.”

In the US, Consecration will be released theatrically in select locations on February 10, 2023.

Shooting on Consecration began late in the summer of 2021 in London and Scotland.
