Joel McHale spent months training with knives and martial arts in order to do his own knife stunts in the film. He managed to go through months of training, as well as most of filming without a single injury. However during one of the last days of filming, his son was visiting on set and McHale used his knife to cut a piece of white chocolate for him. He cut his hand and bled profusely. See more »
Early in the film, Sarchie's arm is slashed by Jimmy in an encounter, suffering a deep gash that it is stated will require stitches. In the very next scene at the Bronx Zoo, the wound is not visible. Immediately following, we see him at home and the arm is bandaged. 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.
