Marina Antunes [Celluloid 06.12.18] United Kingdom horror



Writer/director Aislinn Clarke has worked in theatre and made a couple of short films but her debut feature is bound to get her some attention; The Devil's Doorway looks downright great.


Lalor Roddy and Ciaran Flynn star as Father Thomas and Father John respectively, a pair of priests who are sent by the Vatican to investigate a miraculous event at an Irish house for "fallen women." What they find there isn't anything like a miracle but rather a complete nightmare complete with ritualistic abuse, tyrannical nuns and perhaps even a bout or two of demonic possession.



The movie unfolds in 1960 and Clarke shoots in 16mm, giving The Devil's Doorway a found-footage kind of vibe but thankfully, it doesn't seem to rely too much on the handheld camera approach.

Clarke does seem to be going for full-on religious horror and if the trailer is any indication, the movie will not disappoint.


The Devil's Doorway will open theatrically and be available on VOD July 13.

Wasn't as good as the trailer depicts. I was disappointed.
