The Devil’s Doorway takes place at a women’s home in Northern Ireland, where all sorts of women said to be living immoral lives in the eyes of the Catholic Church. Two priests travel to the home to document a miracle of a Virgin Mary statue weeping blood, and then things get weird. The film premieres on VOD July 13, so check out the synopsis (via Slashfilm) and trailer below.
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.
