Lionsgate Trying To Piss Off Christians? image
Lionsgate sure does have an interesting relationship with Christian audiences. They've minted tons of money off Tyler Perry's movies, which appeal to the church-going crowd with spiritual themes and a glorification of Sunday prayer, and now they're producing The Vatican Tapes, a thriller described as being similar to The Exorcist and Rosemary's Baby and, y'know, using the name of the Pope's abode.

Is it a thriller that's deliberately there to piss off Christian audiences, thereby earning more publicity? THR isn't being clear on that-- they offer no plot synopsis beyond calling it a "spooky genre film." But Lionsgate definitely has a handle on the horror audiences thanks to many years of Saw movies so Christians or not, they'll probably find a way to get this to the right audience regardless.
