18 March 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of horror movies, mainly of the exorcism ones.

Well, i'll be honest with you, i was waiting this movie since it was announced.

Last night, i went to the cinema to see it. I hated it. The story, in general, it's quite good, however, the movie is awful. The actors 'played well their role', they were well choiced. I think that they could had make a great movie, the story is amazing!

What i most hated it was the end. When the movie ended i was like " oh my god, i think that the projector of the cinema is broked". Everyone in the cinema started to comment: is this the end?? Is it over??.

Really weak, i am very disappointed.
