Lionsgate has invoked the first official trailer for Daniel Stamm’s (The Last Exorcism) Prey for the Devil (previously titled The Devil’s Light) ahead of the film’s 28 October theatrical release.
Directed by Stamm, from a screenplay written by Robert Zappia (Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, “The Tom and Jerry Show”), Prey for the Devil stars an ensemble cast made up of Jacqueline Byers (Roadies, Bad Samaritan), Colin Salmon (Mortal Engines, Alien Vs Predator), Christian Navarro (“13 Reasons Why”), Lisa Palfrey (Pride), Nicholas Ralph (“All Creatures Great and Small”) with Ben Cross (Star Trek) and Virginia Madsen (Candyman, “Designated Survivor”).
The official plot reads as follows:
In response to a global rise in demonic possessions, the Catholic Church reopens exorcism schools to train priests in the Rite of Exorcism. On this spiritual battlefield, an unlikely warrior rises: a young nun, Sister Ann (Byers).
Although nuns are forbidden to perform exorcisms, a professor (Salmon) recognises Sister Ann’s gifts and agrees to train her. Thrust onto the spiritual frontline with fellow student Father Dante (Navarro), Sister Ann finds herself in a battle for the soul of a young girl (who Sister Ann believes is possessed by the same demon that tormented her own mother years ago), and soon realises the Devil has her right where he wants her… and it wants in.
Prey for the Devil releases in cinemas this coming 28 October, 2022 and in the meantime, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer.
