Father Bowden is a WWII veteran who is experiencing nightmares, flashbacks and other personal problems, including alcoholism. He is recruited by the archbishop to perform a series of exorcisms. This is the apparently true account of the last exorcism known to have been done by the catholic church Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Goofs

In one of the early scenes, Father Bowden shows a college classroom images of the devil. One of the images was the popular devil head drawn by the artist 'Coop'. The problem is that this movie is set in the 1950s and Coop hadn't even been born by that time. See more »

The true account
10 July 2001 | by (Leeds, England) – See all my reviews

This movie is compelling viewing. There's not many people who haven't seen the Exorcist, which now looks rather jaded after almost 30 years. This movie does not glamourise evil in fact it shows the human weaknesses of the priest who is played by former 007 Timothy Dalton. A very compelling movie
