This Halloween Season We ‘Prey For The Devil’ With Daniel Stamm and Jacqueline Byers

Scares are one thing….but when there’s an idea behind them it makes it all that much more potent and believable.

On this episode we are getting into the Halloween swing of things with a new movie that is hitting Cineplex theatres this coming Friday.  It’s time to Prey For The Devil.

Sister Ann (Jacqueline Byers) believes she is answering a calling to be the first female exorcist… but who, or what, called her? In response to a global rise in demonic possessions, Ann seeks out a place at an exorcism school reopened by the Catholic Church. Until now these schools have only trained priests in the Rite of Exorcism – but 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. Determined to root out the evil, Ann soon realizes the Devil has her right where he wants her.

It’s a fresh take on the subgenre of the exorcism movie and it takes a compassionate and logical angle on the issue as well, but don’t worry there’s still plenty of creepy moments to have you on the edge of your seat.

We had the unique pleasure of sitting down with director Daniel Stamm and (Toronto’s own) Jacqueline Byers to talk about the origins of the story, the importance of the idea behind it all and so very much more….

Prey For The Devil is in Cineplex Theatres this coming Friday October 28th.
