Kathleen Robertson, established television actress in the US will be seen as the leading lady in Vatican Tapes.

The Vatican Tapes is about the ultimate battle between good and evil- God versus Satan. When a priest (Michael Pe?a) is called upon to exorcize a powerful satanic force he meets with an evil much more powerful than ever imagined.

Hollywood horror films have left an imprint on the Indian box office for a very long time. The genre has matured and evolved over time. This year, two of the biggest horror films from Hollywood that made it to Indian screens were Insidious: Chapter 3, currently running to full houses and Poltergeist that grossed over $2 million in the first three days of release in India.

Some other films such as Conjuring and Anabella have also fared extremely well in India, keeping up to its international success. Alongside action and franchise driven cinema, horror is the third strongest contender from Hollywood in India.

Multivision Multimedia distribution head Sunil Udhani said, “Horror has always been a favourite among Indian audiences. While the trend is on the upswing here in Bollywood, the market for movies like Vatican Tapes is ever expanding. We have already seen a couple of success stories from the genre with this year. Horror is a unique genre in Hollywood that is not star dependent on stars; on top of that Vatican Tapes boasts of an illustrious star cast such as Djimon Hounsou and Dougray Scott. We are sure The Vatican Tapes will continue in the tradition of box office success.”
