Your typical demonic possession film will consistently warn you that being possessed is bad. When we watch films like The Exorcist, The Evil Dead or The Devil Inside, we are happy that we are not the victims of a demon. However, this new mini-series titled South of Hell ponders whether it could be good to be evil, questioning if you could, in fact, live with a demon inside you.
A supernatural thriller set in South Carolina, South of Hell focuses on Maria Abascal, a stunning demon-hunter-for-hire whose power stems from within. Like those she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover how far Abigail will go to remain a part of her.
South of Hell comes from producers Jason Blum and Eli Roth, with Roth directing the pilot episode and Rachel Talalay, Jennifer Lynch and Jeremiah Chechi directing others. With the show set to air on Friday 27th November – where all its 8 episodes will be available for you to binge watch – we thought it would be appropriate to show you a couple of trailers.
Check out the trailers below and delve in to a terrifying and surprisingly sexy world of demonic possession. South of Hell stars Mena Suvari, Zachary Booth, Dana Foxworth and Bill Irwin. The show airs on WE TV this Friday 27th November.
