Here is a synopsis of the film Veronica.
In 1991 Madrid, after holding a seance at school, a teen girl minding her younger siblings at home suspects an evil force has entered their apartment.
The trailer begins by introducing the title character, Veronica. She is your average teenage Catholic school student doing typical rebellious activities with her two friends. They sneak down into a dark basement when they come across a Quija board the girls decide to experiment with the spirit board and see if they can contact the other side.
They never imagined they would get a response from someone or something. When Veronica starts to notice weird occurrences, visions, scars, and bruises she has no recollection of receiving, she begins to worry. Not just for herself but also for her younger siblings.
During the seance with her friends, Veronica is possessed by something genuinely horrific. Veronica and her household fall under an unexplainable supernatural assault that they can not begin to fathom. From the creative mind of Paco Plaza, the writer, and director of the popular zombie franchise, REC, comes a terrifying tale of pure unimaginable evil.
Veronica is now playing on the streaming service.
