Having made his mark as one part of the Neveldine/Taylor filmmaking duo (co-directors of Crank, Gamer and Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance), Mark Neveldine’s first solo effort, the Michael Peña-led good vs. evil film The Vatican Tapes, is set to possess horror audiences when it hits theaters this July 24th, via Pantelion Films. The official one sheet and trailer for the demonic horror film has made its way online, and judging from the trailer, it looks like Neveldine is applying the same breakneck speed, frantic pacing that he and Taylor have become quite well known for executing in their films. I’m curious to see how he does as a solo director, and this could very well be quite the entertaining possession flick.

Mark Neveldine, half of the Neveldine/Taylor combo that brought us Crank and Gamer, helms this new horror film about exorcisms and the secret role of the Vatican.

Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It’s all up to Father Lozano (Michael Peña) to wage war for more than just Angela’s soul, but for the world as we know it.

Possession movies are a dime a dozen and they really have to offer something unique to get my attention, even though I do have a soft spot for religious thrillers. The appeal of The Vatican Tapes is more straight forward than most: director Mark Neveldine.

"You tell them I am here." Adding more demonic exorcism and found footage to the growing pile of tired horror is the new trailer for The Vatican Tapes. However, the film seems to employ a mix of found footage and basic narrative filmmaking as it follows a young woman (Olivia Taylor Dudley) possessed by some kind of dark force that catches local priest Father Lozano (Michael Pena) off guard, prompting him to call in experts from The Vatican to help. But what they encounter is far more sinister than any average demon as it appears the antichrist has arrived. It's another typical exorcism horror thriller. Watch below! Here's the first trailer for Mark Neveldine's The Vatican Tapes, originally from Yahoo: The Vatican Tapes is directed by Mark Neveldine (co-director Crank, Gamer, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance) and written by Christopher Borrelli (The Marine 2). The horror film follows the »
