A hardened lapsed Catholic NY cop who comes across unexplained supposedly paranormal events. He crosses paths with a non conventional Jesuit priest fighting for souls against demon possession with the opening lines the following events are based on true events and what do you have? This year’s horror thriller that will make you quake in your boots because it is purportedly based on true events.
Does the film make you jump and is there blood and gore? Well there is some blood and the tension is maintained throughout although there are some unintentional laugh out loud moments when it just seemed a little silly especially the use of the rain machine, which I presume was to help the viewer relate to the indeterminable struggle and toil that Ralph Sarchie played by Eric Bana felt in his quest against the demons. Whatever the purpose of the rain machine was it did get irritating by the end.
If you are a fan of the 1970 style horror movies and by that I mean The Exorcist and you’ve seen Seven then it feels as if it a mixture of these two movies although the story could have been developed more and the side characters especially the wife played by Olivia Munn and Ralph Sarchie’s partner could have been developed to enrich the story.
Having said that if you are looking for a few screams, jumps and subsequent spillage of popcorn then you could do a lot worse than go and see this movie.
