Stigmata

A FILM BY: Rupert Wainwright
WRITTEN BY: Tom Lazarus
STARRING: Patricia Arquette, Gabriel Byrne, Jonathan Pryce

Nü-Metal Mondays Feature | A Part of Music Box of Horrors: Dawn of the Drive-In Presented by Shudder 

When Frankie Paige (Patricia Arquette), a young hairdresser from Pittsburgh, begins to suffer the stigmata—a physical manifestation of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion wounds—Vatican investigator Father Kiernan (Gabriel Byrne) is sceptical of their authenticity. However, as the severity of the wounds increases, Kiernan realises Frankie has become the vessel for an extraordinary and provocative message that threatens the very foundations of the Catholic Church. Steeped in aggressive nü-metal aesthetics and deftly balancing sacrilege, hatred for the corruption in the Catholic Church, and a lust for relief from the pain of human existence, Stigmata slaps harder than ever in 2021. It will haunt your soul for years to come!
