Ahead of the EFM in Berlin, Bloody Disgusting scored an exclusive first ever look at Fangoria’s next production, The Seventh Day, which tells the story of a renowned exorcist who teams up with a rookie priest for his first day of training.

 Below you’ll see Vadhir Derbez as Father Daniel, a young priest conscripted by the Archbishop of New Orleans to join a growing exorcism task force, under the training of legendary exorcist Father Peter (Guy Pearce, pictured above). As they plunge deeper into hell on earth on the rookie priest’s first day of training, the lines between good and evil blur, and their own demons emerge.

Don’t Breathe and VFW‘s Stephen Lang, also pictured below, co-star as the serious and deeply pious archbishop of the Catholic Diocese of New Orleans.

 

As Deadline previously reported, Keith David (The Thing) will portray Father Louis, a mentor to Father Peter (Pearce) in his youth. Brady Jenness (“The Sinner”) will portray Charlie Giroux, a young boy accused of a heinous crime while allegedly under the influence of demonic possession.

Shot in Dallas and New Orleans, Justin P. Lange (The Dark) directs from his own script.

Producers are Dallas Sonnier and Amanda Presmyk for Cinestate and Fangoria. Kimberly Hwang and Chelsea Davenport are also producing. Voltage Pictures CEO Nicolas Chartier and President and COO Jonathan Deckter are executive producing, alongside Adam Donaghey, Phil Nobile Jr and Danielle Cox.
