Lionsgate Movies released not one, but two delightfully horrifying trailers for the upcoming Prey for the Devil on their official YouTube channel. The first trailer was released on July 14, 2022, and the second followed on September 23, 2022.
In the first trailer, Sister Ann discusses her dark childhood at the hands of her mother as she prepares to join what can only be described as the exorcism squad: a group of priests training to help the doomed victims of demonic possession. Sister Ann is the only nun in Father Quinn's classroom full of priests, and the trailer shows Quinn explaining why he agreed to let her participate in the exorcisms. It seems this isn't Ann's first time dealing with the supernatural, and somehow Father Quinn knows she has what it takes.
In the second trailer, Sister Ann meets with a girl named Natalie. Natalie's parents believe their daughter is a victim of possession, and Sister Ann soon strikes up a tentative friendship with the girl. More of Ann's first day in the classroom with Father Quinn is shown, and he makes it clear that she is only there to observe as women are forbidden from performing exorcisms. However, as we know, Quinn soon vouches for Ann after finding out about her connection to the supernatural.
An exclusive Prey for the Devil clip titled "Worms" was recently released on Lionsgate's official YouTube channel. In the clip, Natalie covers her eyes seemingly in fear, and what happens next is not for the faint of heart.
It's safe to say Ann has some unfinished business with the dark side, and it seems the devil has been lying in wait for the perfect opportunity to get to her.
Prey for the Devil follows a young nun, Sister Ann, as she finds herself on the spiritual battlefield following a worldwide increase in demonic possessions. Prior to the outbreak of these unexplained possessions, women have always been forbidden from performing exorcisms, with trained priests being the only ones able to do so. However, a professor responsible for training the priests, Father Quinn, recognizes Sister Ann has a gift – as well as a past personal connection – relating to the supernatural and agrees to train her alongside the priests. Soon, Sister Ann meets her first possession victim: a young girl named Natalie, who is being haunted by something evil. After spending time with Natalie, Sister Ann comes to a chilling realization. The evil being attached to Natalie is the same demon that haunted her own mother years prior.
The Nun (2018) – Part of The Conjuring Universe, The Nun follows Sister Irene as she and her colleagues are called to a Romanian monastery to investigate a string of unexplainable deaths. When Sister Irene and the group arrive at the religious grounds they quickly realize something sinister is terrorizing the place of worship and those that are unlucky enough to live within its walls.
Saint Maud (2019) – After nurse Katie is unable to save one of her patients, she falls deep into trauma and completely reinvents herself. Now a devoted Roman Catholic going by the name Maud, the nurse is assigned a new patient Carol, a free-spirited woman living with terminal lymphoma. Maud strongly disapproves of Carol's lifestyle and does everything in her power to "save Carol's soul". When Carol rejects the fragile nurse's help, Maud spirals even deeper into mental decline.
