Filmmaker Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism, Them) returns to the world of religious horror in the latest trailer for Lionsgate’s Prey for the Devil.
Arriving in theaters next month, the film stars Jacqueline Byers (Salvation) as Sister Ann, a nun looking to become a female exorcist. But who or what beckoned her to this particular line of work? Despite the fact that women have not traditionally been recruited in the fight against evil, the Catholic Church has no choice but to accept our protagonist when demonic possessions begin to rise the world over. Sensing her innate talent for banishing wicked entities, an exorcism professor (Resident Evil’s Colin Salmon) agrees to train her. Sister Ann ultimately hits the front lines with Father Dante (13 Reasons Why’s Christian Navarro), hoping to rid a little girl a demon that tormented the nun’s mother years before.
Lisa Palfrey (Sex Education), Nicholas Ralph (All Creatures Great and Small), Ben Cross (Pandora), and Virginia Madsen (Swamp Thing) round out the cast.
Watch the trailer below:
The film was produced by the Joneses, Paul Brooks (The Fourth Kind) and Jessica Malanaphy (Insidious: Chapter 2). David Brooks (The Boy Downstairs), Brad Kessell (I Still See You), Scott Niemeyer (Pitch Perfect), and Michael P. Flannigan (The Invitation) are executive producers.
Prey for the Devil arrives on the big screen Friday, Oct. 28.
