It’s supposed to be like watching a documentary; obviously, it’s all fake, but that’s the style of the movie. It makes things more frightening!
It’s sort of weird. At first I was like, Ah…it should be a Catholic priest. But then you realize it’s a GOOD thing that a Catholic priest isn’t the exorcist, for the guy is a fake. He’s an Evangelical minister who doesn’t believe that demons exists, and he goes so far to fake his own exorcisms (he puts this smoke device in a crucifix to make it look like it’s burning; he has sound machines; etc…)
In the movie, you aren’t quite sure if the main girl is really possessed or not. Towards the end, I was thinking that the message of the movie was that exorcisms are fake and harm people.
(DON’T CONTIUE READING IF YOU PLAN ON SEEING THE MOVIE)
BUT she really is possessed. This is only fully realized at the end of the movie.
The end of the movie is AWFUL. A bunch of Satan worshippers (whose leader is the pastor of a church who the possessed girl’s family used to go to) tie up the girl…And the baby she has is half demon. You don’t actually see the thing, but it is thrown into a huge fire.
And suddenly the fire explodes; a demon is supposed to be in it. This part of the movie ruins the whole thing. It gets sooo cheesy at this point. A demon baby? Really? When will we have an at least quasi-realistic exorcist movie?
The film crew along with the minister end up dying.
The worst part of the movie (to me) was the part when the possessed girl kills a cat. It is a very strange part; she takes the camera with her and you see a bunch of blood going everywhere, with the cat making noises. It’s gross.
I have to say that I HATE scary movies. But this wasn’t THAT scary.
