ALLELUIA

Exclusive Area Premiere!

(2014) dir Fabrice du Welz w/Lola Dueñas, Laurent Lucas [93 min; DCP; in French with subtitles]
Based on notorious real-life “lonely hearts killers” who make victims of their romantic liaisons, ALLELUIA is a dark love-story-gone-wrong from Belgian horror maverick Fabrice du Welz. Michel (Lucas) is a professional hustler with a penchant for scamming vulnerable widows and divorcees. But he meets his match with Gloria (Dueñas), who desperately pursues him despite knowing his true character. The unhinged lovers embark on a deadly odyssey amplified by wild sex, unbridled jealousy, and passionate forays into the dark arts. This smart and gory shocker breathes new life into the lovesick horror genre to serve up a chilling tale of white-hot desperation and terrifying devotion.
