Principal photography for the provocative horror film Cristina is set to begin this spring in Vancouver, IndustryWorks Studios tells Bloody Disgusting. Horror figure and auteur filmmaker Christopher Alexander has signed on to direct the film.
Cristina is the story of a woman plagued since childhood by a demonic entity summoned by her Satanic father. As she grew so did her demon, raising hell to back a blood libel older than time.
The film was written by Heather Thompson, a veteran writer whose work in fiction ran parallel to a 20-year-long career as a freelance artists, music and youth culture journalist.
“Cristina is a fascinating and terrifying amalgam of classic theological horror films like Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, but armed with a hefty dose of surrealism,” exclaimed Alexander. “It ultimately tells an intimate portrait of a woman pushed to the edge and beyond.”
IndustryWorks Studios will produce the film and are the worldwide distributors of the film. Caterina Scrivano will be presenting the first-look at Cristina at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.
