Russell Crowe, Vatican mysticism and eerie demons are the key ingredients as the Samaritan director Julies Avery steps into the horror genre with The Pope’s Exorcist.
The story in The Pope’s Exorcist revolves around the Vatican’s chief exorcist Father Gabriel Amorth, who uncovers a centuries-old conspiracy while investigating the possession of a young boy.
The cinematography and overall atmosphere of the trailer, particularly the possession scenes and Crowe’s performance, feels promising. Also, the English actor and narrator Ralph Ineson brings the voice of the demon into a chilling territory.
The Pope’s Exorcist will possess the theaters on April 14, 2023.
