From IFC Midnights comes director Tommy Bertelsen’s unsettling new horror thriller Welcome to Mercy, screening one night only at The Frida!
A young woman struggles against the unholy forces that possess her in this unsettling occult thriller written by Kristen Ruhlin, who also stars as Madaline, a single mother who is inexplicably stricken with stigmata. Together with her friend and sole trusted confident August (Lily Newmark), Madaline travels to a remote convent, where she and August find themselves in a desperate fight for survival against forces darker than Madaline’s most terrifying fears.
