My Best Friend’s Exorcism Review: Elsie Fisher Leads Funny & Gross Horror

Female friendships have served as the backbone of some of the best horror movies — Tatum and Sidney in Scream, Lily and Amanda in the criminally underrated Thoroughbreds, and the group at the center of The Craft all come to mind. These friendships can sometimes serve as a battleground, one as small as the fight over social status or one as all-encompassing as the battle for a friend’s soul. Jennifer’s Body may be one of the best examples of this as Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried duke it out over Fox’s Jennifer and her appetite for teenage boys. My Best Friend’s Exorcism, Prime Video’s adaptation of the Grady Hendrix novel of the same name directed by Damon Thomas, evokes some, if not all, of these films in one way or another. The film has just about everything — mean girl humor, gross-out body horror, 80s nostalgia, and satanic panic, making for a devilish ride that, while less than the sum of its parts, is still a frighteningly good time.

My Best Friend’s Exorcism, with humor & horror, makes for a devilish ride less than the sum of its parts, but still a frighteningly good time.
