[Rating: 1.5]

Director: William Brent Bell

Cast: Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman, Evan Helmuth, Ionut Grama, Suzan Crowley, Bonnie Morgan, Brian Johnson, Preston James Hillier, D.T. Carney

Synopsis: In 1989, emergency responders received a 9-1-1 call from Maria Rossi (Suzan Crowley) confessing that she had brutally killed three people.  20 years later, her daughter Isabella (Fernanda Andrade) seeks to understand the truth about what happened that night.  She travels to the Centrino Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Italy where her mother has been locked away to determine if her mother is mentally ill or demonically possessed.  When she recruits two young exorcists (Simon Quarterman and Evan Helmuth) to cure her mom using unconventional methods combining both science and religion, they come face-to-face with pure evil in the form of four powerful demons possessing Maria.  
Many have been possessed by one; only one has been possessed by many.

Review: Many films have been made on exorcism. This is not one of the better ones. A slow paced plot that keeps audiences waiting patiently to be scared. The slow pace aside, the story itself borders on boring. No interesting twists and turns. Just the usual levitation, speaking different languages, gory eye makeup, climbing walls, twisted limbs etc. Nothing extraordinary, story-wise or spook-wise. 

Isabella (Fernanda Andrade) is on mission to understand the truth about what happened with her mother 20 years ago, when she brutally murdered 3 people trying to perform and exorcism on her.  So Isabella travels to the Centrino Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Italy where her mother has been locked away. She wants to determine if her mother is mentally ill or demonically possessed. This is when she recruits two young exorcists (Simon Quarterman and Evan Helmuth) to cure her mom using unconventional methods combining both science and religion and they come face-to-face with pure evil in the form of four powerful demons possessing her mother. 

From then on, it’s just the usual fanfare of what we associate with demonic processions and exorcisms. A somewhat silly climax included, the movie overall seemed pointless, trying to cash in on the now successful documentary film-making format, the film ends up being neither commercial nor documentary. All in all, nothing impressive.

Verdict: Watch it if you want to test your patience.

    This movie was definitely awful. I saw this yesterday evening in order to review it for my blog. I wasn’t surprised that it was bad, but it wasn’t scary at all.
