‘The Devil and Father Amorth’ Shows Real Exorcism

Published

on

While many films love the catch tagline of “based on a true story” or “based on true events”, this film really backs up the claim.

‘The Devil and Father Amorth’ is as real as it gets, featuring a real exorcism performed by Father Gabriele Amorth, a Vatican exorcist.

‘The Exorcist’ director William Friedkin was invited by Father Gabriele Amorth to witness and film an actual exorcism and the film is a documentary about the experience.

Friedkin leads a tour that moves from the infamous Exorcist steps in Georgetown to Italy, where he meets with the 91-year-old Father Gabriele Amorth, official exorcist of the Diocese of Rome, and accompanies Amorth on one of his harrowing house calls. A sprightly, at times gonzo-style, investigation into the long history of demonic lore, and a one-of-a-kind insight into the persistence of medieval belief in the supposedly modern world.”

The film was acquired for a theatrical release by The Orchard and is scheduled for a worldwide digital release following theatrical releases in New York and Los Angeles.

Published

on

Blumhouse has dropped a trailer for Universal Pictures’ ‘Ma’ starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer.

An Australian trailer was released that gave fans a look at the strange film set to arrive on May 31st.

According to the synopsis:

“Everybody’s welcome at Ma’s. But good luck getting home safe. Oscar® winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.” But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie’s mom, Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) as a local dad, Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) as his girlfriend, and McKaley Miller (TV’s Hart of Dixie), Corey Fogelmanis (TV’s Girl Meets World), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power) and Dante Brown (Lethal Weapon TV series) as Maggie’s friends.

From Tate Taylor, the acclaimed director of The Help and Get On Up, and blockbuster producer Jason Blum (Get Out, Halloween, The Purge series) comes a thriller anchored by a daring and unexpected performance from Spencer, one of the most powerful actors of her generation.

Ma is written by Scotty Landes (Comedy Central’s Workaholics) and Taylor, is produced by Blum for his Blumhouse Productions, by Taylor, and by John Norris (executive producer, Get On Up), and is executive produced by Spencer, Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno, and Robin Fisichella.”

‘Hell Fest’ Writer Akela Cooper Writing Sequel to ‘The Nun’

Published

on

Although it was the highest grossing film in the Conjuring franchise, ‘The Nune’, which dropped last October, was absolutely horrible, in my opinion, and my review reflected those views.

Despite all of the hype and build, the film just fell short.

However, due to it’s box office success, a sequel is in the works, and a new writer is at the helm.

According to Deadline, Akela Cooper, who is known for her work on “Luke Cage,” “Grimm,” “American Horror Story,” and”Hell Fest”, will pen the script for the sequel.

Producer Peter Safran , who will return alongside James Wan to produce the sequel, teased something interesting in regards to a sequel.

“We have a really fun storyline for that teed up, so I think that’s the next one that will be written” Safran said, according to Entertainment Weekly.
