Lionsgate is hoping it has the next Paranormal Activity in this low-budget thriller about an exorcist with a crisis of conscience. The film is populated by unknowns and, once Hostel helmer Eli Roth signed on as a producer, the budget was covered through foreign pre-sales. Lionsgate later acquired it in a bidding battle. It opens August 27.
