Trailer: Found footage returns with IFC Midnight's The Devil's Doorway

I know most people out there are sick and f*cking tired of the found footage subgenre. But it is one of my absolute favorite subgenres of horror and I look forward to each and every new entry we get nowadays - which isn't much. And it's with this in mind I'm automatically looking forward to checking out IFC Midnight's new movie THE DEVIL'S DOORWAY.

It's directed by the first woman to helm a horror film in Northern Ireland, Aislinn Clarke, but if you need more convincing on the found footage flick, then maybe today's trailer and poster will help you out. The movie presents the question: What unholy terrors lurk behind the walls of a secretive Irish convent? And begins in

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.

Again, you can check out the official trailer and poster for IFC Midnight's THE DEVIL'S DOORWAY below, and then mark your calendars as the film is all set to hit select theaters, VOD and via digital platforms in the U.S. on July 13, 2018. Before that though, THE DEVIL'S DOORWAY will be screening at Cinepocalypse at the Music Box Theater in Chicago on June 22. So if you're planning to attend the festival make sure to plan room for this film in your viewing schedule.
