REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..If William Friedkin's 1973 The Exorcist is the genre's benchmark, this is its punchline..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]
“..the movie's primary pleasure is Hopkins..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“..a workmanlike B-movie that embraces as many of the genre's cliches..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
