FILM OF THE WEEK: 'LA BOCA DEL LEON'
Short horror film shot entirely on iPhone 4S proves story over tech to be a frightful combination.

Inspired by the real Vatican Exorcisms Manual, the short film tells the harrowing story of a father obsessed with the world of the dead. One of his macabre games has gone too far, so he decides to make one last call for help.
Watch "La Boca del León"

Spanish national Alfonso García López' "LA BOCA DEL LEON" (The Lion's Mouth) is a short horror film written by Vincent Blonde and produced by GEOFILMS ENTERTAINMENT that takes the maxim of less is more to a whole new level in the craft of genre filmmaking, and chose to forgo the latest state-of-art cinema gear and shot the entire film with an iPhone 4s!

The jury of Phonetastic Mobile Sitges Film Festival at the 46th Sitges Film Festival (2013), awarded La Boca del León a Phonetastic Special Mention for best short film shot entirely with a cell phone. The film's helmer noted that the production was inspired by the tradition of the horror classics. The 4-minute piece, recorded entirely with an iPhone 4s, raises ethical and moral questions about how new technologies are entering deep into the framework of our lives in the age of ubiquitous communication and social interaction, even into areas as sacred as supernatural phenomenon and demonic possession. The back-story, according to its creators, revolves around the appointment of 8 new exorcists in Madrid, and a new initiative of the Diocese of Madrid that established a call-in service to help address the increasing cases of possessions. The service allows candidates seeking exorcisms - and priests alike - to avoid long and expensive journeys from their homes and/ or base of operations, respectively (talk about "phoning it in"). The Diocese of Madrid claims that the Spanish exorcist Jose Antonio Fortea (EL PAIS) documented a total of 400 cases in which the devil had allegedly made an appearance, although most have been attributed to psychiatric circumstances. Of that number only 4 were authenticated as actual cases of possession requiring an exorcism... This is one of them.
