After the suspicious death of her brother, a priest, Grace (Jena Malone) goes to the Mount Saviour Convent in Scotland to find out what really happened. Once there, she uncovers murder, sacrilege, and a disturbing truth about her own past.
IFC Midnight and Shudder distribute in the US. IFC will give the film a limited theatrical release, followed by a Shudder debut later in the year.
Director Christpher Smith described the movie as “a film about the nature of religion and how defining one thing as divine creates a false opposite that is heretical.” Adding… “This film is an opportunity to take the audience on a thrilling journey into the dark unknown, and I want to really push that to the limit both in terms of scares and the psychology of the main characters. I want Consecration to be the scariest yet.”
Directed by Christopher Smith (Creep, Triangle, Black Death, Get Santa, The Banishing).
Described as a supernatural thriller.
