THE EXORCISM OF GOD (2021) Reviews and overview of horror movie



‘God and the Devil cannot exist in the same body’

The Exorcism of God is a 2021 supernatural horror film about a priest who becomes possessed by Satan and commits a terrible sacrilege.

Directed by Alejandro Hidalgo (The House at the End of Time) from a screenplay co-written with Santiago Fernández Calvete. Produced by Antonio Abdo, Gonzalo Gutierrez ‘G.G.’, Alejandro Hidalgo, Karim Kabche, María Florencia Lemoine, Joel Seidl and Joe Torres.

The Mexican-American co-production stars Joseph Marcell, María Gabriela de Faría, Will Beinbrink, Irán Castillo and Hector Kotsifakis.



In an isolated Mexican town, Father Peter Williams (Will Beinbrink), an American exorcist becomes possessed by the Devil, subsequently committing a terrible sacrilege. Eighteen years later, the consequences of his sin come back to haunt him, unleashing a battle within…


“A few creative scare moments arrive in demonic iterations of religious icons, but mostly Hidalgo relies on repurposing the same possession horror beats. It’s all in service of highlighting this very corrupt system but blandly written supporting players and a flat lead that never earns any absolution, redemption, or growth of any kind hamper the impact.” Bloody Disgusting



Saban Films has acquired distribution rights in the US, as well as in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland and South Africa, with XYZ Films continuing to oversee international sales in other territories.
