You can only defeat it when you believe.
Supernatural thriller based on Matt Baglio’s «The Modern Day Exorcist», which is inspired by true events. After the recent “The last exorcism” another movie with similar style comes to the big screen with more epic proportions and interesting cast. The frightening scenes, the screams and the fast shots impress viewers who they keep out their eyes on the screen. The script however,at the middle of the film, starts to become annoying with naive quotes that cause laughter. Anthony Hopkins reminds (again) Hannibal Lecter but now he is more old and tired. The young Colin O’Donoghue is good in the role of student, giving a freshness to the old-fashioned story and we will probably see him in several films in the future.Michael Hafstrom’s direction does not show anything special and does not add something new in a story that we have seen many times in cinema with better direction, for example by Roman Polanski in the Ninth gate. It is definitely a movie that will entertain fans of that kind of movie, with interest … surprises until the end. Advice: don’ t eat before you go to cinema to see The Rite! Add to positive music and depressing atmosphere.
