IFC Midnight has been killing it with their releases in 2018. Many of them have made my top 10 of the year and Welcome to Mercy looks like it will fit perfectly with the rest.
Check out the terrifying trailer, poster, and release date down below.
This exciting new horror thriller was directed by Tommy Bertelsen and written by Kristen Ruhlin. Ruhlin also stars in the film along with Lily Newmark, Sophia Massa, Eileen Davies, and more.
Official Synopsis for Welcome to Mercy:
A young woman struggles against the unholy forces that possess her in this terrifying occult thriller. After being stricken with stigmata, single mother Madaline (Ruhlin) is sent to a remote convent. When arriving, nothing is what it seems and her friend August (Newmark) is seemingly the only person she can trust. Together, they must confront the demons inside Madaline before she becomes the Antichrist.
