Author Grady Hendrix is well a well-known horror author, delivering novels such as The Final Girl Support Group and Horrorstör. The trailer for the movie adaptation of his 80s set book My Best Friend’s Exorcism is here ahead of its premiere this September.
“Surviving the teenage years isn’t easy, especially when you’re possessed by a demon. It’s 1988, and best friends Abby (Elsie Fisher) and Gretchen (Amiah 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 (Christopher Lowell), Abby is determined to compel the demon back to the pits of hell—if it doesn’t kill Gretchen first.”
Directed by Damon Thoman and written by Jenna Lamia, My Best Friend’s Exorcism, which combines horror with a hint of comedy, lands on Prime Video on September 30, 2022.
