In PREY FOR THE DEVIL (formerly titled The Devil’s Light) is an upcoming American supernatural horror film about a nun who is studying how to perform exorcisms when she encounters a demonic force. The film is directed by Daniel Stamm and written by Robert Zappia. It stars Jacqueline Byers, Virginia Madsen, and Ben Cross (his final film before his death in 2020).
Nathan Barr (THE GREAT, CARNIVAL ROW, HEMLOCK GROVE, TRUE BLOOD, HOSTEL) has scored the film.
Summary: In response to a global rise in demonic possessions, the Catholic Church reopens exorcism schools to train priests in the Rite of Exorcism. On this spiritual battlefield, an unlikely warrior rises: a young nun, Sister Ann (Jacqueline Byers). Although nuns are forbidden to perform exorcisms, a professor (Colin Salmon) recognizes Sister Ann’s gifts and agrees to train her. Thrust onto the spiritual frontline with fellow student Father Dante (Christian Navarro), Sister Ann finds herself in a battle for the soul of a young girl (who Sister Ann believes is possessed by the same demon that tormented her own mother years ago), and soon realizes the Devil has her right where he wants her….and it wants in.
Lionsgate and Gold Circle Entertainment present PREY FOR THE DEVIL, a Lionsgate production, a Confluence production. The film is scheduled to be released on October 28, 2022.
