“..the story soon devolves into variations of many movies we have seen before..”
by Peter Keough [Boston Globe]
1.5 of 4

“..speaking of material, the film is said to be based on the case files of a real-life cop-turned-demonologist. Instead, it seems to have been inspired by a stack of rejected horror-movie scripts found in a studio dumpster..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]
1.5 of 4

“..some of it's shivery, but a lot of it is familiar from similar movies. Deliver me from this "Evil," please..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
Review rate : C-

“..Scott Derrickson, who made the infinitely scarier and more accomplished Sinister, seems to have lost his feel for the genre. He drenches just about every scene in an ugly, inky darkness..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]
2.5 of 4

“..an exorcism flick that's far more compelling than its genre usually requires..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
