The Plot of The Pope’s Exorcist:

The horror movie The Pope’s Exorcist is inspired by the actual files of Father Gabriele Amorth, a priest who acted as chief exorcist of the Vatican and who performed more than 100,000 exorcisms in his lifetime. (He passed away in 2016 at the age of 91.) Amorth wrote two memoirs — “An Exorcist Tells His Story” and “An Exorcist: More Stories” — and detailed his experiences battling Satan and demons that had clutched people in their evil.

The horror movie is directed by Julius Avery (Overlord) and stars Russell Crowe in the title role.

Trailer for The Pope’s Exorcist:


I usually keep up-to-date with all the horror news, and make sure Heaven of Horror share the best and latest trailers for upcoming horror movies. I love all kinds of horror. My love affair started when I watched 'Poltergeist' alone around the age of 10. I slept like a baby that night and I haven't stopped watching horror movies since. The crazy slasher stuff isn't really for me, but hey, to each their own. I guess I just like to be scared and get jump scares, more than being disgusted and laughing at the grotesque. Also, Korean and Spanish horror movies made within the past 10-15 years are among my absolute favorites.
