Marty Stalker’s ‘Hostage to the Devil’ the latest Irish addition to Netflix
21 Dec 2016 :
The feature documentary directed by Marty Stalker (Family) will be available to stream on Netflix from Sunday January 15th 2017.

‘Hostage to the Devil’ is made up of real footage from exorcisms in addition to interviews and dramatic reconstructions and archival material.

The project is produced by Chris Patterson of Causeway Pictures film in association with Underground Films.

It was one of twelve Irish documentaries to sell at the Marche Du Film in Cannes this year and made its world premiere at Frightfest 2016.

‘Hostage to the Devil’ Producers Chris Paterson of Causeway Films, and Rachel Lysaght of Underground Films;
“The central question this film sets out to interrogate is one that has occupied minds for centuries; does the Devil exist? The film examines this question through the life of one man, Malachi Martin; an Irish priest – a Kerryman - who dedicated his life to battling this ancient evil. But was he a warrior for Christ, or a charismatic charleton?”

Marty Stalker, Director:
“I’m delighted that ‘Hostage To The Devil’ will be released worldwide on Netflix from 15th January 2017. As a filmmaker, it’s a dream come true to present my work to such a large-scale audience, and Netflix provides an incredible platform.”  Stalker continues “The fascinating Malachi Martin was and still is an enigma and I have no doubt we’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more about him and his life in the years to come.”

The script is co-written by Marty Stalker and Rachel Lysaght.
