Based on the New York Times’s best-selling young adult novel, Elsie Fisher and Amiah Miller star as close friends to the end in My Best Friend’s Exorcism.
Plenty of exorcism films out there are frightening, but this film blends comedy, scares, and 1980s nostalgia perfectly.
Here is the official synopsis:
Surviving the teenage years isn’t easy, especially when you’re possessed by a demon. It’s 1988, and best friends Abby (Elsie Fisher) and Gretchen (Amiah Miller) are navigating boys, pop culture, and a paranormal force clinging to Gretchen like a pair of neon legwarmers. With assistance from overly confident mall exorcist Christian Lemon (Christopher Lowell), Abby is determined to compel the demon back to the pits of hell—if it doesn’t kill Gretchen first. At turns horrifying and hilarious, My Best Friend’s Exorcism pays homage to 1980s pop culture with a totally timeless tale of terror and true friendship. Based on Grady Hendrix’s best-selling novel.
It also stars Cathy Ang (And Just Like That…, Over the Moon), Rachel Ogechi Kanu (Cheer for Your Life), and Christopher Lowell (GLOW, Promising Young Woman). Damon Thomas (Killing Eve, Penny Dreadful) is directed from the screenplay adaptation by Jenna Lamia (Good Girls, Awkward) based on the novel by Hendrix (Satanic Panic).
