The Exorcist: How Does The Real Father Gabriele Amorth Feel About The Classic Horror Movie?

As the inspiration for the 2023 film The Pope's Exorcist, the real Father Gabriele Amorth unsurprisingly had a strong opinion about the classic horror movie The Exorcist. With the movie finally hitting Netflix, The Pope's Exorcist has gained another wave of attention after its successful theatrical run this year. The movie tells the story of Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican's chief exorcist who performed over 100,000 exorcisms throughout his career. Though he recognizes that some believed possessions are actually mental illnesses, the exorcist encounters many true demonic possessions, not entirely dissimilar to that portrayed in 1973's The Exorcist.
