Supernatural horror directed by Julius Avery. Inspired by actual case files, The Pope’s Exorcist (2023) centers on Father Gabriele Amorth (Russell Crowe), a priest who acted as Chief Exorcist of the Vatican and performed more than 100,000 exorcisms in his lifetime. We follow Amorth as he investigates a young boy’s terrifying possession and ends up uncovering a centuries-old conspiracy the Vatican has desperately tried to keep hidden.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Priest: Father Gabriele Amorth, on the night of June 4th, you performed an exorcism.
Father Gabriele Amorth: She was not possessed. She was mentally disturbed. What is this about?
Priest: We have more questions for you, Father Amorth.
Father Gabriele Amorth: I am the Chief Exorcist of the Vatican. My position was appointed by the Pope!
Father Gabriele Amorth: You have a problem with me, you talk to my boss. The Pope.
Father Gabriele Amorth: Exorcism is my job. With the vast majority of the cases to which I am assigned, do not require an exorcism.
Cardinal: In my observation, ninety-eight percent of the cases that are assigned to Father Amorth, are then further recommended by him to doctors and psychiatrists.
Cardinal Sullivan: And the other two percent?
Father Gabriele Amorth: The other two percent. This is something that has confounded all of science and all of medicine for a very long time. I call it evil.
Father Gabriele Amorth: If evil does not exist, what then is the role of the Church?
The Pope: [to Amorth] There is a case that needs your attention.
Demon: Bring me the priest.
Priest: Has the boy ever suffered any trauma?
Giulia: He saw his father impaled.
Priest: I’m here to help, Giulia.
Demon: [as the priest is tossed out of the room] Wrong priest!
Father Gabriele Amorth: What is your purpose?
Demon: You. I am your nightmare.
Father Gabriele Amorth: My nightmare is France winning the World Cup.
Demon: You can’t hide behind your jokes forever.
Dad: [as Amy answers the phone] Amy, it’s dad.
Demon: You’re all going to die.
Priest: It’s the Vatican seal.
Father Gabriele Amorth: The Church has fought against this demon before and the Vatican covered it up.
Father Gabriele Amorth: The Vatican must have known this, and they buried the truth here.
Demon: [to Amorth] You’ve been played. And you took the bait.
Father Gabriele Amorth: Whatever you do, you only do because God allows it.
Demon: [as he’s using his powers to strangle Amy] Did he allow that.
Cardinal: Imagine what could happen if the Devil possessed the soul of the Pope’s exorcist. Who will defend you?
Father Gabriele Amorth: My faith does not require defense.
Father Gabriele Amorth: We are getting closer to hell.
