A simple, but well delivered story
24 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'DEAD OF NIGHT: The Exorcism' begins unsuspectingly and the characters are developed nicely for their purposes down to the end of the film. The dark atmosphere is prominent from the beginning, but the viewer doesn't know where the tale is going to lead or what to make of it until they are witnessing the events themselves through a touching and emotional ocean of words. Each actor does a fine job and they are all equally engrossed and believable. The over all tale is perfectly creepy and Anna Cropper does an excellent job delivering her chilling lines, which is the climax of the movie. A very nice film for those who respect older horror movies and slow paced, but worthy stories.
