An unholy hybrid of Beaches and The Exorcist that blends teen angst, adolescent drama, unspeakable horrors, and a mix of ’80s pop songs into a pulse-pounding supernatural thrillerThe year is 1988. High school sophomores Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fourth grade. But after an evening of skinny-dipping goes disastrously wrong, Gretchen begins to act…different. She’s moody. She’s irritable. And bizarre incidents keep happening whenever she’s nearby. Abby’s investigation leads her to some startling discoveries—and by the time their story reaches its terrifying conclusion, the fate of Abby and Gretchen will be determined by a single question: Is their friendship powerful enough to beat the devil?
Throughout “My Best Friend's Exorcism,” Mr. Hendrix energetically relives the glories of the '80s, from the music — 1988 was the annus mirabilis of Def Leppard's “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and Guns N' Roses's “Sweet Child o' Mine” — to the big hair. Deep under the influence of hellspawn, Gretchen dresses in “black stirrup pants and black Capezios and a leopard print sweater with a black turtleneck underneath.” Truly terrifying.
