ShockTillYouDrop.com has your exclusive first look at the one-sheet for the French supernatural thriller, The Monk, based on the 1796 Matthew G. Lewis gothic novel. The film, which stars Vincent Cassel as the eponymous character, traces the corruption of a 16th Century, pious Capuchin Monk.
Abandoned at birth at the gates of a Capuchin monastery in Madrid, Brother Ambrosio (Cassel), raised by the friars, grows up into a preacher admired far and wide for his fervor. Ambrosio is feared for his righteousness and believes he is immune from temptation – until the arrival of a mysterious apprentice undermines his convictions and leads him down a dangerous path of sin, corruption and murder.
The Monk gets a VOD and limited theatrical roll-out on March 8th. Take a gander at the poster within…
