The Seventh Day - Vadhir Derbez

The Seventh Day – Vadhir Derbez

Vadhir Derbez has been a fixture in Mexican television and movies for quite some time. When the lead role in the horror movie The Seventh Day came across his desk, he immediately jumped on the opportunity.

Not to mention, he stars alongside veteran thespians with Guy Pearce (Memento, L.A. Confidential), Stephen Lang (Avatar film franchise, Don’t Breathe), Robin Bartlett (City of Angeles, Inside Llewyn Davis), and Keith David (The Princess and the Frog, They Live). There’s plenty of incentives there for a movie like this.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Renowned exorcist Father Peter (Guy Pearce) teams up with a rookie apprentice (Vadhir Derbez) for his first day of training. As they plunge deeper into hell on Earth, the lines between good and evil blur and their own demons emerge.

Justin P. Lange (The Dark) wrote and directed the movie.
