    Following two forays in the fantasy genre with the short films MAL CUERPO (2011) and CASTIDERMIA (2012), the latter of which was co-directed with Xavi Garriga, Marc Carreté (born in Barcelona, 1970) makes his feature debut with the film ASMODEXIA; a road film concerning an evangelist grandfather, his granddaughter, exorcisms and the city of Barcelona as theatre of the events (a metropolis that has, in recent years, become the impromptu set of many horror productions: from REC [Paco Plaza & Jaume Balagueró, 2007] to LOS ÚLTIMOS DIAS [Alex Pastor & David Shepherd, 2012], Hooked Up [Paul Larcuen, 2013] and even the U.S. and Canada co-production AFFLICTED [Clif Prowse & Derek Lee, 2013], of which the initial section was also developed in Barcelona).

    Q&A: Caitlin Kittredge talks Witchy new comic, “COFFIN HILL”

    As the supernatural claims our attention in horror cinema, a very noticeably witchy atmosphere is permeating. It’s extended from film (HANSEL & GRETEL, LORDS OF SALEM) to television (AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN) to the pages of Vertigo, the influential publisher who just this month released both a revamp of horror anthology series THE WITCHING HOUR and Caitlin Kittredge’s New England-set COFFIN HILL. The latter, authored by fantasy and young adult writer Kittredge, finds a Massachussetts woman whose high-society family history is steeped in witchcraft and the occult. As a reckless teenager toying with that black magick, Eve Coffin unleashed… something. Now, charged with responsibility and putting her life back together, Eve returns home and starts where it all went off the rails.
