Product Description

Inspired by true events, this supernatural thriller follows a seminary student (Colin O’Donoghue) sent to study exorcism at the Vatican in spite of his own doubts about the controversial practice and even his own faith. Only when sent to apprentice with legendary Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who has performed thousand of exorcisms, does his armor of skepticism begin to fall. Drawn into a troubling case that seems to transcend even Father Lucas’s skill, the young seminarian glimpses a phenomenon science can’t explain or control – and an evil so violent and terrifying that it forces him to question everything he believes.

Michael Kovak comes from a family of undertakers and priests. He doesn't want to be an undertaker, so he joins the priesthood. After a four year free education, Michael decides he doesn't have faith and wants to opt out. He is informed if he doesn't become a priest, he will be billed for his education, about $100,000. He is then "convinced" to go to Rome to learn to become an exorcist, something he has even less faith about. In order to enhance Michael's faith, he is sent to see a priest who looks a lot like Hannibal Lecter. Father Lecter (Lucus) is performing his daily exorcism on a very pregnant 16 year old girl. She says things to Michael that only Michael would know, proof she is possessed by the Amazing Kreskin, or some demon. The girl snarls, rolls around on the floor, does a contortion act during the exorcist, which was ineffective in Latin, but worked better in English, God's native tongue. It soon becomes apparent that the devil is after Michael, but it is confusing as the theme is that the devil doesn't want us to believe he exists by going out of his way to convince us that he does. Father Lucus makes house calls as it appears possession is 9/10ths of Rome.

Michael also meets a female reporter who he confides in about his doubt and experiences. A good movie for people who believe atheists can be converted to Roman Catholicism with the help of the devil.

I would give this movie 3.5 stars. I bought this DVD in preparation for attending a talk done by the real exorcist that is portrayed in this movie. While it showcases scenes that are more typical of real exorcisms (as compared to more Hollywood-esque versions shown in movies like The Exorcist), the real life of the exorcist is changed quite a bit. He was not a young pre-ordained unbelieving priest, but a devoutly believing priest. Also, the friendship he strikes up with a news reporter was with a male reporter, not a female. So....the implied sexual tension between male and female wasn't there either in the true course of events. I like movies to be based more on real life events if they are about a person's real life.
Some of the scenes scared me and left me feeling haunted for a few days after (so, as a thriller, it did its job here) . For these reasons, I vote the experience of watching this movie as "good". That is not to say that others will not vote it as "excellent"!

Because you're mine

Antony Hopkins was really possessed with playing the part. Colin O'Donoghue spends most of his time walking around looking confused. Alice Braga is too cute for the part and almost distracting from the spooky scenes.

The story itself is just the old rehash of belief and disbelief. Of a coming of age story for many involved. Parts of the dialog are tongue-in -cheek as they make reference to the original exorcist movie. Lots of spooky ambiance and not an over done sound track. It is the acting and actors that give the good rating to this presentation.

Remember the possession is nine tenths of the law.
