Paramount Pictures has released the trailer to SPELL, coming to Premium Video-On-Demand and Digital in time for Halloween on October 30 from Paramount Home Entertainment. The pic tells the story of a man on the way to his father’s funeral in the Appalachian mountains when a storm downs his plane, landing him in the rescue of Ms. Eloise’s (Loretta Devine). Think Misery + Angel Heart and you have a good idea of where this is headed.
Synopsis: While flying to his father’s funeral in rural Appalachia, an intense storm causes Marquis (Omari Hardwick) to lose control of the plane carrying him and his family. He awakens wounded, alone and trapped in Ms. Eloise’s (Loretta Devine) attic, who claims she can nurse him back to health with the Boogity, a Hoodoo figure she has made from his blood and skin. Unable to call for help, Marquis desperately tries to outwit and break free from her dark magic and save his family from a sinister ritual before the rise of the blood moon.
