IFC Midnight has released the trailer and poster for The Devil's Doorway ahead of it's Midwest Premiere at Cinepocalypse in Chicago on Friday, June 22nd.
Synopsis: "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."
The film is directed by Aislinn Clarke and stars Lalor Roddy, Ciaran Flynn, Helena Bereen, and Lauren Coe.
