About an hour north of Barcelona, an old tuberculosis hospital was converted to a large film studio, the Parc Audiovisual de Catalunya. Fans of Spanish horror film have likely seen several films shot there, and the most recent film in production is Asmodexia. The first feature film directed by Marc Carreté, written by Carreté and Mike Hostench (co-director of the Sitges Fantastic Film Festival), the studio's former use has served useful for some scenes of the film, which I was able to visit recently.

Asmodexia tells the story of a grandfather and granddaughter exorcist team, who travel the Barcelona area plying their trade. On set, I had the opportunity to watch a scene being shot, and talk to Carreté and Hostench about the film. In addition, the production team sent me some pretty amazing stills from the film.

Asmodexia is the new film produced by MS Entertainment, a new Spanish production company dedicated to fulfilling the increasing demand for genre film. The current renaissance of Spanish horror film has seen a growing demand, not only for Spanish-language films, but horror film in any language. Producer Emili Pons and other Spanish producers are making films for an international market, knowing that genre films can often be the saving grace of a national cinema, as the fan base and markets are open to a wide variety of fantastic films and approaches. While Asmodexia is in Spanish, MS Entertainment will produce more films both in the country's native language and English.
