The Exorcism marks the sophomore outing as director for Joshua John Miller after an extensive career acting, producing, and writing.

Vertical Partner Peter Jarowey said, “Joshua has profound expertise in this genre, and we applaud his creation of a film that reverently nods to classic horror while adding a fresh twist. We want to thank everyone at Miramax for their partnership and are looking forward to bringing the film to theatres nationwide this summer.”
