My Best Friend’s Exorcism Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer & More

In this cheeky supernatural horror comedy, My Best Friend’s Exorcism, the classic horror of the 1980s meets a skinny-dip acid trip disaster in a movie that tests the strength of friendship against the powers of evil.

In the film, the character Abby, a non-believer student at a private Christian high school, must save her best friend Gretchen after a night exploring the haunted cabin in the woods goes wrong. 


The story is based on the 2016 Grady Hendrix novel My Best Friend’s Exorcism, which tells the story of a non-believer student reasonably as one would expect from a horror story from the 80s with the title exorcism as its theme.

However, we have included all the details, including some information regarding My Best Friend’s Exorcism release date.

It stars Elsie Fisher (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) as Abby, a gothic outsider friend. She stands up for Gretchen in the face of a demonic entity that has taken over her body and is willing to risk everything to save her.

Amiah Miller (The Water Man) portrays Gretchen, a goody-goody daughter of intensely religious and sometimes abusive parents who suffer from demon possession in this novel.

The two of them have been inseparable since Abby’s tenth birthday party at the roller rink in her hometown, which was themed after E.T. She was the only person to attend the party.

With Glee being the brains of the group with a secret crush on an unattainable older man, Cathy Ang (Over The Moon) will play Glee, the brains behind the group.

There is a lot of conflict between Rachel Ogechi Kanu (Funkboy) and Abby. It seems that Margaret is the bratty cheerleader friend who has gone to great lengths to make Abby feel uncool since they were kids.

One of the most anticipated scenes in the film is when the demon unleashes his sick and twisted revenge on the girl. Many people cannot wait to see what the demon does to her.

As Christian Lemon, Christopher Lowell (The Help) takes on the role of a Faith Fitness muscleman who recognizes Gretchen’s symptoms as indications of demonic possession and decides to help Abby save her friend by assisting her with the task.

My Best Friend’s Exorcism Plot

The four girls are on vacation to enjoy themselves. They are Gretchen, Abby, Margaret, and Glee. During the summer, they spend a lot of time sunbathing, playing games, eating delicious food, and generally having the best time ever.

Nevertheless, there is a twist in the story when Gretchen catches a glimpse of what appears to be a haunted house. Gretchen shares with Abby a horror tale that she heard from Gretchen, who was wandering through the forest when she came across a girl who used to live in that house.

When Gretchen tells Abby that that girl used to perform Satanic activities at that house in the past, she looks for the house where she used to perform those activities.

Gretchen then insists that Abby come inside with her when she finally finds the house. Despite her fears and reluctance, Abby gives in. Their eyes were fixed on the surroundings as they slowly entered the house.

A mysterious figure is seen moving through a room, making them run for their lives. Gretchen’s bad luck worsens as soon as she falls, trying to run out of the house, but it does not end there.

While making her get up, Abby fails to realize that Gretchen becomes possessed by a demon at the same time she gets up. The four friends returned to their school after their vacation was over, and they went back to their classes.

A concise summary of the plot of My Best Friend’s Exorcism would be that Gretchen becomes possessed by a demon, and Abby fights to free her.
