What was “The Pope’s Exorcist” about?

Directed by Julius Avery (“Overlord”, “The Samaritan”), the film tells the story of Father Gabriele Amorth, the chief exorcist of the Vatican. The clergyman, who reports directly to the Pope, is assigned to another case requiring the attention of a specialist. He undertakes to investigate an incident involving a boy whose family has just moved into an inherited ancient monastery in Spain. With the help of a local priest, Amorth not only tries to help the child but also must confront the past sins of the Church, which have brought powerful forces of evil upon the Earth.

Russell Crowe played the lead role, with Franco Nero portraying the Holy Father. The cast also includes Daniel Zovatto, Alex Essoe, Peter DeSouza-Feighoney, and Laurel Marsden.
