This chilling documentary looks at Catholic Church’s surprisingly still common act of performing exorcisms by following Franciscan Father Cataldo Migliazzo, Sicily’s most famous exorcist, as he works to “cure” those who claim to be demonically possessed – troubled souls facing schizophrenia, depression, and other psychological disorders which the act of exorcism not only refuses to address, but can often make worse.
