Goofs

The movie takes place in 2013 in New York (mostly the Bronx). In one scene Mendoza is smoking a cigarette in the FDNY Bar. New York passed a clean air act that eliminated smoking in all bars in 2003. While a few establishments may turn a blind eye - it is highly unlikely a bar that caters to police and fire fighters would. See more »

Quotes

Sarchie: You see, Father, as we speak every day, out there, someone's getting hurt, ripped off, murdered, raped. Where's God when all that's happening? Hmm?
Mendoza: In the hearts of people like you, who put a stop to it. I mean, we can talk all night about the problem of evil, but what about the problem of good? I mean, if there's no God, if the world is just "survival of the fittest," then why are all the men in this room willing to lay down their lives for total strangers? Hmm?

One of the best exorcism type movies I've watched in a while.
3 July 2014 | by dwinchester1996See all my reviews

This is by far one of the best exorcism type movies I've watched in a very long time. The whole tune of the movie as it progresses is cryptic, and keeps you longing for more. Always trying to figure it out on your own as the movie plays on. Most exorcism type movies drag on with the plot and lose me halfway in, but this one however kept me entertained throughout the entire time. Eric Bana's acting is top quality, and quite frankly the best acting I've saw of him since "Troy". It's def. something to look into, if your looking for a good movie to watch. Be it Drama/Horror/Mystery, this movie is for you. You cannot do split rankings on here, but I give it a good 8.5/10 score.
