William Friedkin, the original director of the all-time chiller “The Exorcist,” is about to release a documentary about the real thing called “The Devil and Father Amorth.”
Friedkin found filming a real exorcism most disturbing and appears to have made him a true believer that some things are beyond medical and scientific explanation:
“It was terrifying,” Friedkin told Variety at the Venice Film Festival about recording the footage. “I went from being afraid of what could happen to feeling a great deal of empathy with this woman’s pain and suffering, which is obvious in the film.”
“The Devil and Father Amorth” will open at select theaters starting Apr. 20. If the movie is as good as the trailer below, I predict it will be a big hit.
