Movie Review – Welcome to Mercy (2018)

Welcome to Mercy, 2018.

Directed by Tommy Bertelsen.

Starring Kristen Ruhlin, Lily Newmark, Eileen Davies, Dainis Grube, and Toms Liepajnieks.

"You must control... you almost killed your daughter." IFC Midnight has debuted the first official trailer for an indie possession horror titled Welcome to Mercy, from filmmaker Tommy Bertelsen. The story follows a single mother named Madaline who begins to experience symptoms of the stigmata, so she seeks the help of a local priest and nun to help her understand what is seen and unseen, and hopefully avoid becoming the new antichrist.

It also features Lily Newmark, Eva Ariel Binder, Eileen Davies, Victoria Sokolova, Danis Grube, Toms Liepajnieks, Sophia Massa, and Ieva Seglina.
