Are you a fan of the classic horror film The Exorcist? How about vigilante action pics like Death Wish? Well if you said yes to both then boy do I have a film for you and it comes complete with Charles Bronson lookalike Robert Bronzi to boot.
Bronzi’s latest endeavor is probably his most obscured offering as he stars in the new action-horror pic Exorcist Vengeance. Bronzi stars as a tough as nails priest who is called in when things go really awry in the demon possession works. Uncork’d Entertainment has just unveiled the new trailer and key art for the February release which you can view below!
Official Synopsis: A possession spooker with state-of-the-art special effects, the film tells of a tough priest (Bronzi), someone the Vatican calls to do their dirty work. When a prominent family is terrorized by a demonic force, the priest is called upon by Bishop Canelo to root out the evil, but soon realizes the solution to this mystery is tied to his own past. He must find the killer and stop the Devil’s hold on the family before it’s too late.
Bronzi’s films are certainly an acquired taste and they are definitely hit or miss in the DTV action subgenre. Bronzi fired a blank with Escape from Death Block 13 a few months back but rebounded with the better effort The Gardener mostly due to the participation of martial arts-action star Gary Daniels. This one looks different in a sue me kind of way so why the hell not.
One definite plus going for it is that it comes to us from Mark L. Lester who is a god in action cinema for directing such hits as Commando and Showdown in Little Tokyo. It also stars Steven Berkoff who all fans will know as the villainous Russian leader in Rambo: First Blood Part II. That’s some ultimate action firepower there.
