Storyline

An eleven-year-old boy starts throwing temper tantrums, vomiting on, and attacking people, and swearing uncontrollably. Furniture begins to move on its own when he is around, and he doesn't remember any of it. After giving up on the Protestants, the boys parents turn to the Catholic church for help. Father Bowden is a World War II 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 true account of the last exorcism known to have been done by the Catholic church. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

The true account
10 July 2001 | by 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
