The role of Butler was always written with Joel McHale in mind, however, Butler was "the worst character in the script", according to the director and writer. After struggling to improve the role, he then imagined what he thought McHale would be like if he had gone to the Army instead of college, and worked in law enforcement instead of entertainment. After that, writing became easier and the character grew. See more »

There is absolutely nothing original about this film. The acting isn't bad at all, but the plot is very generic. For the hardcore horror lover the movie will get boring and predictable, you've got the cop with some issues, you've got the priest know knows what's happening, you've got the cop's family with the little girl, the entire plot is a deja-vu.
The basis on which the occult is based has also been used in almost every exorcism film ever made, even though the writer tried to make it a bit more interesting by mixing Christian with persian mythology, however it didn't land that well.
The mystery character is also not very mysterious either, so I guess this film doesn't deserve more than 5 stars from me.
