Meet Real Life Exorcist José Antonio Fortea
While films such as the recent The Devil Inside love to bandy the 'Based On A True Story' label around for a bit of added punch in their marketing regardless of whether it's actually true or not the fact is that while Hollywood has a long history of playing at demons there are those who believe very much in their reality.

Meet José Antonio Fortea - an actual, no joke, Vatican approved exorcist. Fortea is the subject of The Exorcist In The 21st Century, an upcoming documentary by Norwegian filmmaker Fredrik Horn Akselsen.

The Exorcist in the 21st Century takes the viewer into the unknown and sinister world of exorcism in the Catholic Church.  We meet one of the few exorcists in Europe, the Vatican approved José Antonio Fortea. He travels around the world on a mission to enlighten the masses about demonic possession. Constanza, a Colombian woman, is desperately looking for Fr. Forteas help. She claims to have been possessed by demons for nearly 15 years and she goes through a ritual of exorcism before she sees the Spanish exorcist as a last hope for spiritual liberation. The film follows both their journeys and gives a unique insight into one of the world most secret and mystical rites - the catholic ritual of exorcism.
The first trailer for this one has arrived via the official website and it is undeniably compelling stuff. Check it out below.

Interesting trailer, I wonder how the man is depicted in the film as the trailer seems to suggest he might be a sham. Or is that my former practicing Catholic self reading into it..? Either way, interesting stuff.
