Ahead of its arrival on Prime Video next month, a trailer and poster have been released for the upcoming adaptation of Grady Hendrix’s best-selling novel My Best Friend’s Exorcism.
Directed by Damon Thomas, the 1988-set horror-comedy follows teenager Abby (Elsie Fisher), who seeks the help of overly confident mall exorcist (Christopher Lowell) when she begins to suspect that her best friend Gretchen (Amiah Miller) may be possessed by a demon.
Watch the trailer below…
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. At turns horrifying and hilarious, My Best Friend’s Exorcism pays homage to 1980s pop culture with a totally timeless tale of terror and true friendship.
My Best Friend’s Exorcism arrives on Prime Video on September 30th.
