Announced late last year and filmed this past spring, Bloody Disgusting now has the full cast for Lionsgate’s supernatural thriller The Devil’s Light, directed by The Last Exorcism‘s Daniel Stamm and written by Halloween H20: 20 Years Later‘s Robert Zappia.
Starring are Jackie Byers (“Scared Stiff”, “The Strain”), Colin Salmon (Resident Evil, Alien vs. Predator, Nobody), and Candyman‘s Virginia Madsen, the latter of which recently appeared in the James Wan-produced “Swamp Thing” series.
“The Devil’s Light tells the story of Sister Ann, a restless 25-year-old, who devoutly believes that performing exorcisms is her calling. But she is at odds with the institution’s traditions: sisters are not allowed to perform exorcisms, only priests. With the support of a mentor, a professor who senses her special gift, she is allowed to observe actual training sessions. Her desire to prove herself takes a personal turn when she meets one of the school’s most disturbed patients. During their harrowing encounters, Sister Ann comes face to face with a demonic force that infests the school and has mysterious ties to her own past. It is then that the power of evil and her own startling abilities are fully realized.”
The film was produced by Paul Brooks (Pitch Perfect franchise, The Haunting in Connecticut, White Noise), Jessica Malanaphy, Todd Jones and Earl Richey Jones. Executive Producers are Scott Niemeyer, David Brooks and Brad Kessell.
