Do you like 1970s horror? Exorcisms? Hammer films? Of course you do! Just got word of a new flick that rolls all these up in to a single spooky bundle. Brought to you by the fine folks at Hereford Horror, The Exorcism of Karen Walker, is hitting the streets on February 18! DVDs! Digital copies! Horror!
According to the folks over at the London Post “…THE EXORCISM OF KAREN WALKER is the first film to fully explore the concept of Kirlian photography – a process of photographing a person’s ‘aura’.
Accidentally discovered by Semyon Kirlian in 1939, it has been the subject of much myth and speculation ever since. In the film, Diane and Mitch Walker inherit a house once owned by Mitch’s Uncle Alexander, who was ostracised from the family after purportedly abusing Mitch’s sister Karen while dabbling with Kirlian photography. Karen has been in a somnambulistic state in an asylum ever since, but Mitch slowly begins to realise that she was not abused: indeed Uncle Alexander was trying to help her as she was possessed by an ancient demon. Enlisting the help of Alexander’s one time colleague, renowned psychic Ada Devere, he brings Karen back to the house for a terrifying confrontation with the entity trapped inside her.”
