“Prey for the Devil” arrives on the big screen Friday, Oct. 28th

Prey For The Devil Poster

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  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 agrees to train her. Sister Ann ultimately hits the front lines with Father Dante, hoping to rid a little girl a demon that tormented the nun’s mother years before.

Lisa Palfrey, Nicholas Ralph, Ben Cross, and Virginia Madsen round out the cast. You can 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.

Virginia Madsen Joins 6 City East Coast Tour Of Suicide Play “Right Before I Go”

Virginia Madsen, Academy Award nominee from the hit movie “Sideways”, has been added to the east coast tour of Stan Zimmerman’s suicide awareness play, ‘Right Before I Go’, highlighting the raw struggles of people in all walks of life that have died by suicide.

The play brings to life the last words written in letters by individuals lost-including celebrities, veterans, children and those identifying as LGBTQ+, people who have experienced a range of mental health calamities -as well as those who have survived attempts. ‘Right Before I Go’, produced by Seedling Events, will also feature cast members from the popular TV show ‘Gilmore Girls’, with its first performance at 3p.m. in Ogunquit, Maine on October 2, 2022. Tickets, cast bios and additional information about this production can be found at

The tour will run for one week throughout New England and down the eastern seaboard, from Maine to Washington D.C. (including stops in Woodstock, NY; Manchester, New Hampshire; Wilmington, Delaware and ending in Baltimore, Maryland). The play will be under the direction of Gilmore alum Devon M. Schwartz, who brings nearly three decades of theater experience from across the country to this project. To date, cast members include playwright & narrator, Stan Zimmerman (whose writing credits include The Golden Girls, Gilmore Girls & Roseanne), Shelly Cole, Nick Holmes, Devon Michaels, and now, Virginia Madsen, whose nephew died by suicide this year.

“After the suicide death of my good friend, Kevin Gill, I was at a loss about how to process this. Seeing so much shame around the topic, I decided to create a play in the vein of “The Vagina Monologues”, easily produced with actors on stools, reading the script from music stands.” Stan Zimmerman, Right Before I Go creator, said. My hope is that this will create an opening for a much needed discussion about a very complicated issue.”

October 2nd @ 3p.m.
Ogunquit, Maine (The Leavitt Theater)

October 3rd @ 7p.m.
