The Exorcist III

Stigmata

FACT: For millions, the Bible is a wellspring of hope and inspiration for daily living. FACT: For decades, horror filmmakers have also turned to the Bible and Biblical lore for inspiration. Why? For starters, there’s some gruesome imagery there. Let’s not even start on the eye-for-an-eye, tooth-for-a-tooth gore of the Old Testament.
