by Thomas Tuna

Isn’t 13 an unlucky number?

A new Spanish horror film from Studiocanal and Bambu Producciones–13 Exorcisms–will be offered for worldwide sales at this week’s Toronto International Film Festival, according to a report in Variety.

The film–the feature directorial debut of Jacobo Martinez (the Netflix series Jaguar)–was written by the screenwriting team of Gema R. Neira, David Orea, Salvador S. Molina and Carlos Ruano.

Starring Maria Romanillos (Riot Police), 13 Exorcisms is set in 2015, and follows “shy and sensitive” Laura, who struggles to fit in at school. On Halloween, she takes part in a seance and, from that day on, “is assaulted by dark presences, horrifying visions, ominous voices and painful marks on her skin,” according to the synopsis.

Convinced she is possessed, Laura’s parents and the local priest “force her to submit to a series of exorcisms–each one more violent and terrifying that the last.”
