Causeway Pictures has released the new trailer for the upcoming indie documentary Hostage to the Devil. Over 5 years in production, director Marty Stalker has made a film which examines age old questions about the existence of the Devil and the debate over good vs evil, all through the life of a controversial Irish-born Jesuit priest, Fr Malachi Martin.

Using first person-interviews with paranormal experts such as Lorraine Warren, Ralph Sarchie and John Zaffis, along with dramatic reconstructions, archival evidence and words straight from Martin, this spine-chilling documentary takes the audience on a journey through an extraordinary life; marked by battles against the Vatican, scandal, contention and most of all, a deep and all-encompassing belief in the theory and practice of exorcism.
The film explains in graphic detail the process and outcomes of such an ordeal, including the horrifying case study of a four year old girl, whom Fr Martin assessed as requiring exorcism– this was to be the last case he was involved in before he died in mysterious circumstances.
