The screen version of Grady Hendrix’s best seller is coming to Prime Video next month.
MY BEST FRIEND’S EXORCISM, directed by Damon Thomas (PENNY DREADFUL) and scripted by Jenna Lamia, will premiere on the streamer September 30. Elsie Fisher (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2022), Amiah Miller (WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES), Cathy Ang, Rachel Ogechi Kanu and Christopher Lowell star; the synopsis: “Surviving the teenage years isn’t easy, especially when you’re possessed by a demon. It’s 1988, and best friends Abby [Fisher] and Gretchen [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 [Lowell], Abby is determined to compel the demon back to the pits of hell—if it doesn’t kill Gretchen first.”
