 NEWS UPDATE[April 19, 2013] NEW YORK 
      Horror films that delve into unexplained, paranormal activities and superstitions are an enduring obsession in our culture. Perhaps the most terrifying movie of all time, The Exorcist, exploited a primitive fear and apprehension of evil and death by exposing film-goers to demonic possession and the mysterious power of the Church. Ever since, film-goers and the general public have wondered if demons and exorcisms are real.  
         Now, with unprecedented access granted by the Catholic Church, Norwegian director Fredrik Horn Akselsen reveals the secrets and takes the viewer into the mystical world of Catholic exorcisms in his documentary, The Exorcist in the 21st Century. The feature-length film will be released on all major digital platforms and DVD on May 7, 2013 by The Disinformation Company

    NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER! The Church granted filmmakers Fredrik Horn Akselsen and Christian Falch a unprecedented degree of access to tell this story, allowing them to accompany one of the few exorcists in Europe, the Vatican-approved Father José Antonio Fortea, Catholic priest/Exorcist and author.

   Father Fortea travels the world on his mission to enlighten the masses about demonic possession and to help fellow exorcists. Father Gabriel Amorth, official Vatican Exorcist, is also prominently featured in the documentary. 
Father José Antonio Fortea looks across the horizon 
with the Vatican Church looming in the background.
         He has been an exorcist for 25 years and estimates he has seen 70,000 cases. In the film Constanza, a Colombian woman, claims to have been possessed by demons for 15 years and sees the Spanish exorcist as her last hope for spiritual liberation. The Exorcist in the 21st Century follows both Father's extraordinary journeys and gives a unique insight into one of the world’s most secret and mystical rites... the Catholic ritual of exorcism. Captured in a compelling and dramatic fashion by Mr. Akselsen, the on-camera casting out of the demons is every bit as disturbing as anything Hollywood filmmakers could conjure up.

     The 80 minute feature documentary is accompanied by nearly two hours of extraordinary bonus material including:
  • A 50 minute filming of a "real life" exorcism
  • An extended interview with Father José Antonio Fortea
  • Full interview with Father Gabriel Amorth
