UK PREMIERE - From the WYRMWOOD team: a gory, kickass, OTT, future Ozploitation classic. Ancient demons are possessing humans through social media. As the eternal fight between Nekromancers and their nemeses rages on, they’ve become locked in a new type of cyber warfare. An app being designed by a soulless corporation of human husks is overseen by the evil Queen of the Underworld (marvellous Monica Bellucci) and any user unknowingly gives their soul to hell. And so, the fate of all mankind now rests on the shoulders of a sanitation worker, an unaware member of a magical sect, and his best friend.
