THE RITE

Only people with attention disorders could possibly see past the fact that this movie goes nowhere at a relatively quick rate. The Rite, besides falling extremely short of being considered a good movie in any possible way, created a sizeable rift in the stretch of well-executed exorcist films. Though some may feel differently about the “Exorcism of Emily Rose” approach, or the controversial success of “The Last Exorcism,” they were strong in their originality and didn’t unanimously create argument over the sub-genre wearing thin. The set up seemed like it could be promising up until an ever-lasting flat-line where the movie starts to become relentlessly repetitive.

THE LAST EXORCISM

The Last Exorcism does more than just satisfy through a series of thrills and periodic blood-spatterings. A film whose most important character is almost without question the region of Louisiana in which the events take place, The Last Exorcism also offers a satisfying glimpse into the world of show-man priests; priests who are simply doing that and that alone, putting on a show.  The act of exorcising demons and evil spirits certainly isn’t new to the horror movie genre and the Last Exorcism provides some interesting and original insight into the exorcism practice without being the first to spoil the streak of well-executed approaches.
