Prey for the Devil trailer teases an exorcism from hell

In the opening line for the Prey for the Devil trailer, Father Quinn tells his students, “Let’s descend into the mouth of hell, shall we?” For most people, the answer to that question is a hard pass. For Sister Ann and the priests at St. Michael the Archangel School of Exorcism, they have no choice but to take on the devil.

Jacqueline Byers stars as Sister Ann, a 25-year-old nun with a history of facing demonic possession. As a young girl, Sister Ann believed her mother was possessed by the devil. Even though nuns are forbidden to perform exorcisms, Sister Ann is allowed to train in the art of this religious ritual thanks to the help of her mentor, Father Quinn, played by Colin Salmon.

Shortly after she arrives at the school, Sister Ann meets a young girl possessed by the devil. Sister Ann suspects the girl is possessed by the same demon that controlled her mother. As the spirited nun begins to learn more about exorcisms, she’s warned that “once you know the devil, the devil knows you.” The devil doesn’t hold back as the trailer shows multiple moments where the demon possesses another human to attack, choke, and scare Sister Ann. It even creepily crawls into her mouth and rolls the eyes back of Sister Ann.

A war begins in the new trailer for Dune: Part Two
Timothée Chalamet in "Dune: Part Two."

By splitting Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel Dune into two parts, director Denis Villeneuve delayed the introduction of the story's primary villain: The Emperor of the Universe, Shaddam IV (Christopher Walken). But in the newly released trailer for Dune: Part Two, viewers finally get their first glimpse at the man who plotted the downfall of House Atreides. House Harkonnen may have struck the blow against their rival house, but Shaddam IV allowed it because he feared that the late Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac) would unseat him. But the Emperor has badly miscalculated, because Leto's son, Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), is now poised to make Shaddam IV's fears into a reality.
