”Yeah, I’ve got the rights sorted now, so it’s not such a hidden thing…It’s based on a book of the same name, based on the life of a guy who, by getting involved with ouija boards and the occult by trying to disprove it, trying to take the piss out of it, got possessed, had to be exorcised, and later became an exorcist himself.” Said Meadows. “The guy it happened to has died, but his son’s a novelist, and he helped him turn it into a book before he passed away, and now I’m working with him to turn it into a film.”

Beware Of The Devil was written by Robert Lee and was published in 1983. Meadows’ last foray into horror was the stalk and slash feature, Dead Man’s Shoes. At this time no shooting date has been set for the film.
