“The origins of the film come from my childhood watching my father, Jason Miller, play the doomed Father Karras by throwing himself out of a window at the climax of The Exorcist. If that wasn't disturbing enough on its own, my father never shied away from telling me stories of how “cursed” the movie was: the mysterious fires that plagued the production, the strange deaths, the lifelong injuries… the list went on. . The story of any “damned movie” has captivated me ever since.”

“With The Exorcism, we wanted to update the possession movie formula (“A heroic man rescues a woman from forces she is too weak and simple to fight against herself!”) for a world where no group possesses goodness. and decency over another. We were gifted with an extraordinary cast and creative team to tell a story about how we are all vulnerable to darkness, to perpetuate it, if we fail to face our demons The devil may retaliate, but what else. option do we have?”
