We love William Friedkin here at Birth.Movies.Death. and do not possess the power to refuse a documentary from him about a real-life exorcism business. What are we, savages? Of course we’re all over that shit.
So we’re excited to share an exclusive poster for The Devil and Father Amorth:
Here’s an official synopsis:
In his latest, William Friedkin returns not only to his documentary roots but to the subject of one of his most towering works, 1973’s THE EXORCIST. Friedkin, a legendary raconteur, 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.
You gotta love “a legendary raconteur”. Seriously, this sounds amazing. It’s only 68 minutes long, too! Perfect! You can check out The Devil and Father Amorth when it comes out in limited release April 20.
