Trivia

To prepare for the role, Aaron Eckhart disguised himself as a wheelchair-bound, mentally ill Vietnam War veteran and yelled at people on Venice Beach. In one experience, Eckhart sat by the front door of an expensive house. When the homeowner arrived, she was frightened by his presence. She went inside but came back out moments later to ask if Eckhart was doing OK. According to Eckhart, he was very moved by this experience because he saw the woman's effort to change and have sympathy. See more »

Goofs

After Eckhart's character falls onto the street, only one ambulance arrives to the scene. The people trying to revive him on the street are wearing white uniforms. But when it cuts to the scene inside the ambulance vehicle, the workers are wearing blue uniforms. See more »

A review from a 42 year old sci-fi fanatic
13 December 2016 | by (Chesire, CO) – See all my reviews

I seem to be forced to write a review every now and then to counter the teens and 20 somethings that think they need to review every freaking thing in front of their heads. As an adult I can say comparatively speaking in regards to Exorcism, Possession, Evil doings and all things of the nether world this flick is worth the ticket. Aaron plays his role out fantastically (enough that I teared up at times) and until the end of the movie you will see the moments that hearken back to the decades previous releases but this one certainly offers a unique twist on the understanding of good vs. evil.

I found myself nodding early on as a former Catholic and someone who just read way too much to keep believing in Santa Clause or religious super heroes I will say that I have plenty of room in my mind for universe yet untold that retains the secrets of untold, infinite galaxies (Hubble has scratched the surface and soon a new version of Hubble will be hurtling around the Earth).

The cast is just fine and spot on with the sincerity in which they convey their emotional portrayals. I know full well there have been other releases over the last 7 years that fulfill most of the requirements of this genre but Incarnate has heart and an emotional connection I thought was somewhat left out or diminished in the other movies of this similar nature.

As we hear Aaron's arch nemesis character say in the movie "There are some things far worse than death"
