'The Song of Solomon' [Blu-ray]
(Gene Palubicki, James Vanbebber, Jessica Cameron, Andy Winton, David Mcmahon, et al / Blu-ray / NR / 2018 / Unearthed Films - MVD Visual)
Overview: The Catholic Church is trying to save an innocent soul from the ravages of satanic possession. Wave after wave of holy men are sent to confront the possessed, but the same outcome awaits them all .. until now!
Blu-ray Verdict: Rated as "one of the best new indie horror films released in 2018," and featuring a scene where a man slits his own throat and proceeds to rip his tongue out through his neck (don't ask), 'The Song of Solomon' (aka 'American Guinea Pig: The Song of Solomon') is, most definitely, one of the goriest, bloodiest films I have seen in the past decade.
Mary witnesses the brutal suicide of her father. His death unleashes the savage forces of demonic possession in his daughter. The End of Days is upon the world, famine, drought, looting and chaos is ripping the world apart and the Catholic Church is trying to save an innocent soul from the ravages of satanic possession.
Wave after wave of holy men are sent to confront the possessed but what is the Holy Church actually doing? The City on Seven Hills is working on the Second Coming of Christ, but before He comes back - the Antichrist must rule for seven years.
Ergo, 'The Song of Solomon's true nature is to unleash an evil the world has been waiting for since the beginning of time, so when I say that House Of Tortured Souls website has claimed this film to be "... better than the Exorcist", well, I think you know what you're in for here!
For, as the tag line says, When the song is finally sung, Lucifer will be unleashed, and so over the 86 minutes, you will watch as what unfolds before your very eyes will, most likely, be the most gruesome and graphic exorcist film that you will ever see!
Which, in all fairness, is to be expected going in given that Oddtopsy FX ('Bouquet of Guts and Gore') and Toe Tag Pictures ('August Underground' trilogy) were behind the special effects for this picture.
