The right woman for the job.
A new behind-the-scenes featurette has dropped for Prey for the Devil–a new Lionsgate Halloween treat–that delves into a nun’s struggle to become the first female exorcist in centuries. Check out the video–courtesy of Collider–on this page.
The horror pic–directed by Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism) from a screenplay by Robert Zappia (Halloween H20: 20 Years Later)–hits theaters Oct. 28.
In the film–starring Jacqueline Byers, Colin Salmon, Christian Navarro, Virginia Madsen, Lisa Palfrey, Nicholas Ralph and Ben Cross–the Catholic Church has reopened exorcism schools to train priests, but an unlikely candidate shows up: a young nun, Sister Ann (Byers), according to the synopsis.
Although nuns are not permitted to perform exorcisms, a professor (Salmon) recognize’s Sister Ann’s gifts and agrees to train her. Thrust into the fight alongside Fr. Dante (Navarro), Sister Ann finds herself in “a battle for the soul of a young girl, and soon realizes the Devil has her right where he wants her–and he wants in.”
Produced by Paul Brooks, Jessica Malanaphy, Todd Jones and Earl Richey Jones, the film has Scott Niemeyer, David Brook and Brad Kessell on board as executive producers.
