Prey For the Devil | Lionsgate | October 28, 2022

Recommended Posts



Lionsgate with some fun timing with a date announcement that coincides with the release of Candyman, which features callbacks to the original 1992 film.


Bloody Disgusting learned out of CinemaCon that Lionsgate has dated the supernatural thriller The Devil’s Light for release in theaters on February 11, 2022, just in time for a scary Valentine’s Day weekend.


Directed by The Last Exorcism‘s Daniel Stamm and written by Halloween H20: 20 Years Later‘s Robert Zappia, the film features Virginia Madsen, star of the original Candyman who is referenced heavily in the new incarnation, opening in theaters tonight.


Also starring are Jackie Byers (“Scared Stiff”, “The Strain”) and Colin Salmon (Resident Evil, Alien vs. Predator, Nobody).


In The Devil’s Light…


“With reports of demonic possessions reaching unprecedented numbers globally, the Vatican opens schools for exorcisms in six countries including the United States.”

“The Devil’s Light tells the story of Sister Ann, a restless 25-year-old, who devoutly believes that performing exorcisms is her calling. But she is at odds with the institution’s traditions: sisters are not allowed to perform exorcisms, only priests. With the support of a mentor, a professor who senses her special gift, she is allowed to observe actual training sessions. Her desire to prove herself takes a personal turn when she meets one of the school’s most disturbed patients. During their harrowing encounters, Sister Ann comes face to face with a demonic force that infests the school and has mysterious ties to her own past. It is then that the power of evil and her own startling abilities are fully realized.”


The film was produced by Paul Brooks (Pitch Perfect franchise, The Haunting in Connecticut, White Noise), Jessica Malanaphy, Todd Jones and Earl Richey Jones. Executive Producers are Scott Niemeyer, David Brooks and Brad Kessell.

The funny thing is if they left it in February it might have done better than Moonfall is going to do.  

Yeh, if they advertised it I’m sure it would’ve done fine. It won’t now, opening 3 days before Halloween while Halloween Ends is out.

please tell me the movie ends up turning "prey for the devil" into "pray for the devil"


only way I can see this justifying its existence
