The Devil’s Light
Bloody-Disgusting reports Lionsgate will finance a new horror film from director James Hawes (Penny Dreadful), writer Robert Zappia (Halloween H20), and the producer of the Pitch Perfect franchise that sounds like a theological take on Police Academy. The story is said to concern the Vatican opening “schools for exorcisms in six countries including the United States” after “reports of demonic possessions reach unprecedented numbers globally.”
Knives and Skin
Bloody-Disgusting also has word IFC Midnight will release the “neon-soaked teenage fever dream” Knives and Skin on VOD and Digital HD December 7. The film is said to concern “a collective awakening” amongst the teenage girls in a small Midwestern town said to “unfold in a hallucinatory haze of lushly surreal images” after one of their peers mysteriously disappears.
We also have a trailer for Code 8, an indie sci-fi film about a government clampdown on superpowers starring both Robbie and Stephen Amell.

Raised By Wolves
According to KSiteTV, Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi series Raised By Wolves has jumped networks from TNT to, surprise surprise, HBO Max.
Production has also begun on Intergalactic, a new series from showrunner Julie Gearey following the wrongful imprisonment of a space cop named Ash (Savannah Steyn). [Spoiler TV]
The gang investigates a murder at an exorcism in the synopsis for “Vatican 3″, episode 7 of Evil.
When Bridget (Annaleigh Ashford) confesses to murder during her exorcism, Monsignor Korecki (Boris McGiver) asks Kristen, David and Ben to investigate if the details match any open cases and if the woman really is possessed by a demon.
Here’s a quartet of images from Netflix’s V-Wars, starring noted vampire Ian Somerhalder.
