The Pope’s Exorcist is a 2023 American horror film about a real-life priest’s vast number of exorcisms battling Satan and his horde of demons.

Directed by Julius Avery (Overlord) from a screenplay co-written by Chester Hastings, R. Dean McCreary and Evan Spiliotopoulos.

The movie’s confirmed stars are Russell Crowe (Thor: Love and Thunder; Unhinged; Kong: Skull Island; The Mummy 2017), Alex Essoe (Death of Me; Homewrecker; Doctor Sleep; Starry Eyes) and Daniel Zovatto (Flinch; Don’t Breathe; It Follows; Beneath 2013) with more cast members obviouslyexorcism yet to be announced.

The film is a portrayal of the real-life figure of Father Gabriele Amorth, a priest who acted as the chief exorcist for the Vatican and who performed more than 100,000 exorcisms during his lifetime. He died in 2016 at the age of ninety-one.

Amorth wrote two memoirs — An Exorcist Tells His Story and An Exorcist: More Stories — detailed his perceived experiences battling with Satan and the demons that had clutched people in their evil.

Of course, in real life, the is no such thing as Satan or his demons and the Catholic Church actually exploits unfortunate people with mental issues to perpetuate Medieval-age superstitions and beliefs in order to cynically make more money.

Release date:
The Pope’s Exorcist will be released theatrically on April 7, 2023, by Sony’s Screen Gems subsidiary.
