Amazon releases first trailer for ‘My Best Friend’s Exorcism’

Is your best friend worth going through Hell to save?

On Thursday, Amazon released the first trailer for My Best Friend’s Exorcism, which will debut September 30 on Prime Video. Based on Grady Hendrix’s novel of the same name (which is exceptionally good), the horror comedy follows two friends as they’re torn apart by the terrifying combination of high school social dynamics and demonic possession.

In case clothing, hair, and slowed down cover of Tiffany’s ‘I Think We’re Alone Now,‘ didn’t clue you in, My Best Friend’s Exorcism takes place during the 1980s — 1988 to be precise. Also, if the weight-lifting evangelical preachers look familiar, they are roughly based on the Power Team. Gen-X and millennial folks who went to modern/mega-churches during the 1980s or 1990s likely remember them ripping apart phonebooks before giving their sermons.

I totally understand if you’re wary of this film being good due to its explicitly clear marketing as a horror comedy. It’s a big reason I kept ignoring Goodread’s incessant suggestions that I would enjoy the novel it’s based on. But if the movie ends up being anywhere close to the source material, then this will be a highly enjoyable film that also features some legitimately great scares.

My Best Friend’s Exorcism debuts September 30 on Prime Video.
