Get ready to witness some devilish thrills. The Pope’s Exorcist is hitting the streaming scene, starring none other than Russell Crowe. This supernatural horror flick, landing on Netflix come August 16, is a chilling dive into the real-life exorcism adventures of Father Gabriele Amorth, who took on the role of the Pope’s personal demon-fighter back in the ’80s.

Directed by Julius Avery (Overlord), the film is inspired by Father Amorth’s 1990 book An Exorcist Tells His Story and its 1992 follow-up. Russell Crowe steps into the shoes of Father Amorth, who is dispatched by the Pope to assist a possessed boy, Henry, in Spain.

Russell Crowe prepared extensively for the role, even meeting a friend of the late priest who claims to have joined him on over 150 exorcisms.

As the story unfolds, Father Amorth, aided by local priest Tomas Esquibel (Daniel Zovatto), grapples to exorcise the powerful demon Asmodeus from young Henry. The tale culminates in Rome, where our exorcist duo preps for their next supernatural showdown.

Although The Pope’s Exorcist faced mixed critical reception, it had a lucrative box office run, pocketing $75.7 million against an estimated $18 million budget. The International Association of Exorcists had its say too, labeling the movie “pretentious” and critiquing its portrayal of the church’s stance against Satan.

Despite the controversy, a sequel is in the pipeline, hinting at Russell Crowe’s return as Father Amorth. The question lingers: will this next installment stick to theaters or opt for a streaming debut?
