To sum the trailer does what its intended to do, conjure interest. Holy Terror has an interesting synopsis. This becomes a driving force to watch the film. The curiosity is in how Rich Mallery blends psychological with the paranormal.
Below are several quotes based on the press release DecayMag received.
“There has been a resurgence of exorcism/possession-type movies, so it’s a little challenging to give audiences something they haven’t seen before. But we have a few tricks up our sleeve that are going to make Holy Terror stand apart from the crowd. Plus, we’re going for a real late-’70s/early-’80s feel. Films like The Changeling The Amityville Horror and of course the original Exorcist are huge influences on this project..”
“Holy Terror works on deep psychological levels, and has an otherworldly, Twilight Zone-ish kind of feel.”
