Trivia

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 »

Goofs

The priest, when telling Ralph about his affair and subsequent abortion, says that he should have been "defrocked." He says that his confessor also warned him that should he behave similarly again, he would be "defrocked." The word "defrocked" is a uniquely protestant term and a Catholic priest would not use that word. See more »

Don't listen to some of the critics.
6 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't listen to some of the critics. A very good scary movie. I think the critics knocking it just do not like the exorcism genre. If you liked The Rite or The Conjuring you will like this movie. A story with characters you care about. Also based on a true story which of course means there are certain liberties taken with it but that makes it more interesting. This was a scary movie with brains. The background and setting reminded me a bit of the movie Seven. The priest is the most interesting character. I normally am not a huge fan of Eric Bana but he plays the role of the detective well. This could also be classified as a crime thriller with a supernatural twist.
