Is it meant to be a comedy?

"Be careful Michael, choosing not to believe in the devil doesn't protect you from him."

Here's the thing about exorcism-related horror movies: exorcisms are incredibly uninteresting in a cinematic production. Sure, it's exciting to consider a battle royale between an agent of Satan and an agent of God, but exorcisms merely boil down to a priest screaming religious words with wild a... read more

Most aspects of 'The Rite' weren't quite right.

Time and time again, we witness all of these horror exorcism films that are “based on true stories” where they always provide the exact same tone, style of filming and type of suspense in an attempt to terrify its target audience. There has not been one single exorcism film to have been a strong match to sum-up or even surpass the horrifying and realistic execution of the battles between good ... read more

nice movie, but not scary at all and a little slow

An average movie

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I always had a weak spot for Anthony Hopkins, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, the first disappointing thing was that, even though the damned thing was obviously sold as a Anthony Hopkins vehicle, the guy had actually had only a supporting part and he got finally involved with the proceedings only after about 40 minutes. Then, I have to admit that the whole thing had some potential and it liked the fact that they tried to tackle more or less seriously the subject of exorcism. Unfortunately, they only tried but never succeeded, I'm afraid. Basically, even though they gave some space to discuss the fact that someone supposedly possessed might actually have some psychological issues which was interesting, it was unfort” read more

" Where: At Home, Netflix Instant Overall: Unimpressive Thoughts: Pictured above, my expression watching The Rite. I guess as a disclaimer, I am not really a religious person. Usually that goes to my advantage watching faith-based horror flicks, it feels very much like watching another world and not my own. But The Rite really got under my skin, and not in a fun spooky way. I get we are supposed to have a suspension of disbelief, "just a movie" blah blah etc etc. But it was very troubling t"

Scarier Than Fiction (50 movies items)

"Like stories on exorcism and the devil? Based on the life of one of the most famous exorcists of America, Father Gary Thomas, this movie will scare the hell out of you. One piece of advice: Don't try this alone."
