Movie Review – The Pope’s Exorcist

Read Time:1 Minute, 48 Second


The Pope’s Exorcist surprised the hell out of me, which in fact is exactly where Father Amorth (Russell Crowe) was trying to avoid going. The question of the day is did he conquer the demon or did he choke under pressure and lose his soul to the Devil?

After fourteen years of watching practically all of the horror movies that Hollywood gives us, I’ve become jaded. Honestly, almost fifty years of watching due to my love of everything strange and eerie. They seem to all follow the same pattern with their typical outcomes that are so easily deduced within the first twenty minutes.

Russell Crowe was outstanding. His actions, humor, seriousness, and pure faith were downright amazing. This was a serious movie but it felt like he was having fun with it. It’s always refreshing to see and sense that in a movie.

I also want to mention the effects. They did a spectacular job too. The way that they transformed Henry (Peter DeSouza-Feghoney) was spooky, creepy, and perfect. He gave me the chills a few times.

All in all, I loved this movie. This might be a tiny spoiler but I’m excited to see if they make a sequel. They set it up perfectly to have an astonishing 199 hellish returns. You’ll understand later.
