“The Pope’s Exorcist”

No comments


A surprisingly solid exorcist film!

Russell Crowe absolutely shines as Father Gabriele Amorth, one of the chief exorcists in the Catholic Church and foremost expert on the subject until his death.

The film itself is a bit of a masterclass in exorcism filmmaking. From the initial “exorcist shot,” to the portrayal of the rite itself throughout the film, the cast hits all of the marks beautifully, with a natural flow that lends it a realism and authenticity not many horror films achieve. The film fires on all cylinders from beginning to end, shining a light on humanity, humility, and grace.
