There's a terrific new horror film about guilt, shame, and witches, and its name is "Suspi--" wait, sorry, it's called "Welcome to Mercy," a brooding, atmospheric movie set in a Latvian convent that follows an atheist who becomes possessed by an ancient evil. I’m admittedly unfamiliar with Bertelsen’s other directorial work, but I did read on his IMDb page that he appeared in 1994’s Ed Wood … Jump scares so poor and a plot so full of holes that would have Slender Man turning over in his overly large grave.

Or listen to Seglina deliver a master class in inflection as she--as Alyona rejects Madaline's claim that Yelina "abandoned [her]"—delivers a line that, from a lesser actor, would come out on the wrong side of Meryl-Streep-y camp: "I did not!

In horror movies, Love is usually the world's one-size-fits-all cure. In "Welcome to Mercy," it's a more complex sentiment: forgiveness. One answer seems immediately  apparent: to confront her standoffish, estranged mother Alyona (Ieva Seglina). "Welcome to Mercy" is, after all, a film where demonic possession is presented as an expression of Madaline's long-unexamined feelings of helplessness. so Blumhouse must of had very high hopes for the movie...... they also didn't even manage to make the movie 90 mins in fact when the credits mercifully roll the film is only 84 mins bless them.
