The only thing that can get me more excited about a horror film with a Black female lead is a horror film filmed and based in my hometown. Philadelphia filmmakers Tony Trov and Johnny Zito of South Fellini have already established their talent with 2013's Alpha Girls which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Now in 2015 after a successful Kickstarter campaign, they're back pushing their latest project, American Exorcist starring Falon Joslyn (also the star of Alpha Girls) and the incomparable Bill Moseley.
The story goes: A paranormal investigator finds herself trapped in a haunted high rise on Christmas Eve.
I'm digging the simplicity of the breakdown because they'll be plenty left to the imagination going in as a viewer. I much prefer the element of surprise.
In April, Fangoria did a spotlight with some wicked amazing images I had to share. They have me frothing with anticipation!

Look for a Halloween 2016 release. I'm hoping I'll be able to catch a local screening and share my experience.
