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

Seminary student Michael Kovak reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While he’s in Rome, Michael meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas, who introduces him to the darker side of his faith, uncovering the devil’s reach even to one of the holiest places on Earth.

"Stellar casting for this overlooked take on the subject of exorcism. Though it doesn't touch the greatness of giants like The Exorcist and The Exorcist III it, like them, tackles the subject matter with earnestness and solemnity rather than going for cheap thrills. Familiar themes of faith, doubt, and the nuances of the craft of the exorcist abound but are given a unique allure given the basis of the material on actual experiences. "

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- September 2018 (33 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 54min. First Viewing Anytime Anthony Hopkins is onscreen, The Rite becomes a, somewhat, entertaining and effective possession-horror film. Unfortunately, he doesn't get anywhere near enough screentime and the film's lead, Colin O'Donoghue, gives one of the most uncharismatic and lifeless performances that I've seen in years. The film itself is, mostly, bland and forgettable, with nothing of genuine note. "

" 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"

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 I  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 unfor” read more

"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."
