Can you believe this is the 4th year of 31 Days of Halloween? This year I am taking the reins with some help from Susan Harris. Things might look a little different but I guarantee one thing - Lots of "different" Halloween options!
Day 6 - The Pilgrimage (2017)
Susan Says -
Listen, I'm not much of a fan of religious themed movies, but having stumbled upon The Pilgrimage and despite being skeptical, after watching all the trailers, it's been bumped up my TBW list.
Not exactly a horror, but in considering this is a film basically about a bloodthirsty relic believed to be the wrath of Christ, I think it fits with our list!
Based in In the 13th century, Irish monks embark on a reluctant pilgrimage to escort their monastery's holiest relic to Rome. Their mission soon becomes fraught with danger as they trek across a rugged landscape that's been ravaged by years of tribal warfare.
Now, to the good stuff...
The film surprising looks like it might have the fighty aspects of the likes of Vikings and The Last Kingdom, and stars Tom Holland, Jon Bernthal, and Richard Armitage to name a few familiar faces. Now, Tom Holland only says a few words in the trailer so I reserve judgement on his Irish accent and my boy Jonny Bernthal is playing The Mute so he defo gets a pass!
To conclude, I'm gonna be defo checking this out ASAP and I will leave you with my fave snippet from one of the trailers that made me chuckle in a very anti-Catholic way as it pans to a half naked Jon covered in bloods and carrying the holy relic.
"Christ rejoices with everyone he destroys."
