The historical horror thriller The Pope’s Exorcist is a special twist on the traditional demon vs priest storyline. The case files of Amorth, who performed and recorded over 100,000 exorcisms in his lifetime, served as inspiration for the film. The Pope himself appointed the colorful and contentious priest as an exorcist, who is renowned for beginning his exorcisms by snubbing the devil. He even established the International Association of Exorcists, a legitimate association made up of hundreds of exorcists worldwide and recognized by the Vatican. Amorth died in 2016 at the age of 91 and left behind two memoirs An Exorcist Tells His Story and An Exorcist: More Stories which inspired The Pope’s Exorcist.
