Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist

Airs: Mon, 5 Mar

Cast: Stellan Skarsgård, Gabriel Mann, Clara Bellar

In Holland during World War II, Father Lankester Merrin (Stellan Skarsgård - Deep Blue Sea) is forced by a Nazi officer to choose 10 of his flock to be executed, and the resulting psychological trauma shakes his faith in God. After the war, Merrin becomes an archaeologist in British East Africa, where an anachronistic 5th-century Byzantine church is discovered. As the archaeological crew digs deeper, it becomes clear that the church was not intended as a house of worship, but as a crypt to contain an unspeakable evil. But when a demonic spirit is unleashed, the tortured priest must overcome doubt and find renewed faith to perform his first exorcism in the horror thriller Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist.
