After watching enough movies and reading books, the ritual of ridding a demonic spirit should be easy as in My Best Friend’s Exorcism.
The film, set in the late 1980s, has a young teen intent on conducting an exorcism on her best friend under demonic possession. There’ll be plenty of laughs in this comedy horror as the ritual proves to be more difficult.
The film stars Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade, Despicable Me), Amiah Miller (The Water Man, War for the Planet of the Apes), 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) directed the movie from a script written by Jenna Lamia (Good Girls, Awkward) from the book written by Grady Hendrix (Satanic Panic).
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.
