My Best Friend’s Exorcism first look image shows Elsie Fisher, Amiah Miller in Amazon release

Last week, it was announced that the horror film My Best Friend’s Exorcism, an adaptation of a novel by Grady Hendrix (buy it HERE), will be released through Amazon Prime on September 30th. Now the first image from the movie has arrived online, giving an early look at the lead characters played by Elsie Fisher (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Amiah Miller (War for the Planet of the Apes). You can check that out at the bottom of this article. We’re still waiting to see a trailer for My Best Friend’s Exorcism, but that should be coming along very soon.

Directed by Damon Thomas (Penny Dreadful) from a screenplay by Jenna Lamia (Good Girls), My Best Friend’s Exorcism has the following synopsis:

The year is 1988. High school sophomores Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fourth grade. But after an evening of skinny-dipping goes disastrously wrong, Gretchen begins to act…different. She’s moody. She’s irritable. And bizarre incidents keep happening whenever she’s nearby. Abby’s investigation leads her to some startling discoveries—and by the time their story reaches its terrifying conclusion, the fate of Abby and Gretchen will be determined by a single question: Is their friendship powerful enough to beat the devil?

Fisher and Miller are joined in the cast by Cathy Ang (And Just Like That…), Rachel Ogechi Kanu (Cheer for Your Life), and Chris Lowell (Promising Young Woman). We know that Lowell plays a character described as a “muscly meathead”, “who along with his brother performs a ‘Faith and Fitness’ at the teens’ parochial school. He sees that Gretchen is possessed and in need of an exorcism.”

Coming to us from Endeavor Content and Amazon Studios, My Best Friend’s Exorcism is being produced by The Gotham Group, Quirk Productions, and Freaky / Happy Death Day director Christopher Landon.
