La Exorcista is a 2022 Mexican horror film about a nun that performs an exorcism on a pregnant woman which turns out to be unsuccessful. Unfortunately, the evil returns.
Directed by Spanish filmmaker Adrían García Bogliano (Come Play with Me; Black Circle; Scherzo Diabolico; Late Phases; Here Comes the Devil; Penumbra) from a screenplay co-written with Christian Cueva and Ricardo Farias. Co-produced by Pablo Guisa Koestinger and Laura Veytia.
Ofelia (María Evoli) is a young nun who recently arrived in the town of San Ramón, where she is forced to perform an exorcism on a pregnant woman.
The possession looks like it’s ended – until Ofelia discovers that the evil presence is trying to return to the victim’s body. She will have to risk it all to prevent this from happening, even if this means exposing her weaknesses to the forces of evil and putting her own life at risk…
Executive producer Pablo Guisa Koestinger commented: “Our film has a premise that contains an element that is rarely exploited and that breaks traditional genre conventions, for it focuses on a woman as the exorcist and not only as the possessed.”
Currently filming in Mexico City.
