Deeply Unsatisfying
21 October 2010 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie earlier tonight (10/21/2010) at its world premiere in the Tivoli Theater in St. Louis, MO.

It was very disappointing.

Touted as a docudrama exploring the true history of the events that inspired William Blatty's 1971 book/1974 movie "The Exorcist", instead the audience was subjected to 90 minutes of the random meandering nonsense that happens when wannabe ghost hunters are given a camera and a budget.

Divining rods... ouija boards... evps... ambiguous shadowy figures... digitally blurred faces speaking in electronically disguised voices... embarrassingly lame re-creations... erratic timelines... tiring repetitions... irrelevant sidetracks... an aggressively bad soundtrack... sigh...

Viewers hoping for an illuminating exposé will have to settle for an incredibly frustrating lack of substance. This movie offered no coherent facts or details that would lead to a clearer understanding of what actually happened to this boy, who was involved, why, and what they actually did.

I left the movie confused and knowing scarcely more about this case than I did when I arrived.
