In medieval Europe, crusading knights massacre a village full of suspected devil worshippers and build a large gothic church above the cursed remains. It is now present day, and this elaborate cathedral still stands. But when its sealed crypt is accidentally reopened, a group of people trapped inside the church become possessed by the fury of the damned. Can the blood of the innocent survive this unholy communion, or will the ultimate demonic evil be unleashed upon the world?
THE CHURCH was co-written and produced by maestro Dario Argento (SUSPIRIA, INFERNO) and sealed the reputation of director Michele Soavi (STAGEFRIGHT, CEMETERY MAN) as the new master of Italian horror. This visually stunning shocker stars Hugh Quarshie (NIGHTBREED), Tomas Arana (GLADIATOR), Barbara Cupisti (OPERA), and Asia Argento (THE STENDHAL SYNDROME), and features a remarkable score by Goblin and Keith Emerson. Originally known as DEMONS 3, THE CHURCH is presented uncut, uncensored and fully restored from original vault materials.
