For those of you who are interested in the supernatural, there is a new documentary from director Martin Stalker, titled Hostage to the Devil, and you are not going to want to miss. It will be premiering later this month at Horror Channel FrightFest in London.

The documentary tells the “true story of a Jesuit priest, an author, and an exorcist.” It also features interviews with real people that deal with the supernatural, the paranormal, and the occult, including Lorraine Warren.

From the Press Release:

Causeway Pictures, Underground Films, and Content Media are pleased to announce the world premiere of Hostage to the Devil at London’s FrightFest Film Festival 2016 on Friday 26th August, 4.00pm, Discovery Screen 3.

Over five years in production, director Martin Stalker has made a film which examines age-old questions about the existence of the Devil and the debate over good versus evil, all through the life of a controversial Irish-born Jesuit priest, Fr Malachi Martin.

Using first person-interviews with paranormal royalty such as Lorraine Warren, Ralph Sarchie, and John Zaffis, along with dramatic reconstructions, archival evidence, and words straight from Martin, this spine-chilling documentary takes the audience on a journey through an extraordinary life marked by battles against the Vatican, scandal, contention, and most of all, a deep and all-encompassing belief in the theory and practice of exorcism.

The film explains in graphic detail the process and outcomes of such an ordeal, including the horrifying case study of a four-year-old girl whom Fr Martin assessed as requiring an exorcism. This was to be the last case he was involved in before he died under mysterious circumstances.
