The two become fast friends, but when Lyle’s existence is threatened by evil neighbor Mr. Grumps (Brett Gelman), the Primms must band together with Lyle’s charismatic owner, Hector P.

Christian Navarro in Prey for the Devil (Lionsgate)

He stole our hearts playing Tony Padilla in the Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” and now Christian Navarro will steal our hearts again, (and possibly give us a blessing) as Father Dante in Lionsgate’s upcoming horror film Prey for the Devil in theaters October 28.

Prey for the Devil follows an unlikely warrior: a young nun, Sister Ann (Jacqueline Byers). Although nuns are forbidden to perform exorcisms, a professor (Colin Salmon) recognizes Sister Ann’s gifts and agrees to train her. Thrust onto the spiritual frontline with fellow student Father Dante (Christian Navarro), Sister Ann finds herself in a battle for the soul of a young girl (who Sister Ann believes is possessed by the same demon that tormented her own mother years ago), and soon realizes the Devil has her right where he wants her and it wants in.
