An Irish Exorcism

You know what goes back great with a few pints? The devil! We’re just kidding of course, but this latest film, An Irish Exorcism, has far more nefarious plans than getting snookered.

From the Press Release:
Director Eric Courtney and screenwriter Martin Robinson (Seer) breathe new life – and death – into the found-footage horror genre with the chilling AN IRISH EXORCISM. Newcomer Aislinn Ni Uallachain stars as Lorraine, an anthropology student in her final year of college who decides to film her thesis project – on the subject of exorcism within the Catholic Church. Recording interviews with priests from the local diocese, she stumbles upon Father Byrne (Brian Fortune; “Game of Thrones,” “Vikings”), an older priest who is helping a young woman whose 13-year-old daughter is apparently possessed by a demonic force.

Lorraine’s curiosity leads her and her camera operator, Cathal (Dillon White), down a dark path toward the terrifying truth. Things go from strange to worse as all involved become entangled into a frightful journey to save an innocent girl’s life – and maybe their own.

Director Courtney says of the film’s genesis, “Ireland’s identity as being a country steeped in Catholicism and religion” made it the ideal setting for a story about exorcism. AN IRISH EXORCISM, which also stars Paddy C. Courtney (of the original British series “Shameless”), Elaine Hearty, and Anna Davis, had its premiere at the New Mexico Fright Fest. Fans of Paranormal Activity and The Blair Witch Project can add this nerve-shattering tale to their list of must-see movies.

Look for it coming to DVD and Video-On-Demand on May 12 from Virgil Films.

Published

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
