The Devil's Doorway — U.S. Trailer


added: Tue, Jun 12th '18

The grim true history of a Catholic asylum in Ireland, known as the "Magdalene Laundries," serves as the inspiration for "The Devil's Doorway," an upcoming found-footage horror, which has been made up to look like an old 1960s documentary film in which an Irish Catholic priest is sent to investigate reports of a miracle, only to discover something entirely different.

Check out the official trailer for this spooky pseudo-documentary on demon-possessed nuns, which marks the feature debut of Irish horror filmmaker Aislinn Clarke.

Acquired by IFC Midnight, the genre label of IFC Films, "The Devil's Doorway" will be released in the U.S. next month, hitting theaters and VOD on July 13th. Watch the trailer, above.

What unholy terrors lurk behind the walls of a secretive Irish convent? Northern Ireland, 1960: Father Thomas Riley (Lalor Roddy) and Father John Thornton (Ciaran Flynn) are dispatched by the Vatican to investigate reports of a miracle -- a statue of the Virgin Mary weeping blood -- at a remote Catholic asylum for "immoral" women. Armed with 16mm film cameras to record their findings, the priests instead discover a depraved horror show of sadistic nuns, satanism, and demonic possession. Supernatural forces are at work here -- but they are not the doing of God.

Inspired by the infamous true histories of Magdalene Laundries -- in which "fallen women" were held captive by the Irish Catholic Church -- this found footage occult shocker is a chilling encounter with unspeakable evil.
