Featuring a vintage 16mm filming style and a 1960 Irish convent backdrop, The Devil's Doorway is a unique entry in the found footage subgenre (check here to read Heather Wixson's interview with director Aislinn Clarke about the making of the movie), and with the horror film out today in select theaters and on VOD platforms from IFC Midnight, we've been provided with an exclusive clip to share with Daily Dead readers.
Descend into a creepy basement in our exclusive clip below, and keep an eye out for The Devil's Doorway this weekend (and beyond) from IFC Midnight!
Directed by Aislinn Clarke, The Devil's Doorway stars Lalor Roddy, Ciaran Flynn, Helena Bereen, and Lauren Coe:
"What unholy terrors lurk behind the walls of a secretive Irish convent? 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."
