Check out the haunting trailer for prolific documentarian Alex Gibney's Vatican exposé "Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God," premiering at Toronto in September.

"Silence in the House of God" follows the systematic cover-up of Catholic priest Lawrence C. Murphy's sexual predation at a deaf boys' school in the late 1970s and early '80s, revealed in NY Times journalist Laurie Goldstein's 2010 investigative piece on the hushed scandal, and the aftermath involving the highest ranks of Vatican officials.

Based on the trailer, the film looks stylish and unsettling, featuring shadowy shots of religious iconography and Errol Morris-style reenactments (also a staple of Gibney's Oscar-winning "Taxi To the Dark Side" and 2010 critical success "Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer").
