After the daemon/boy kills the father, all that happen was that two paramedics came and collected the body, no questions asked. In real, the place would have been swarming by police since his death hardly was by natural cause. See more »

Truly terrible, mindless, lazy and dumb
26 January 2017 | by (CO) – See all my reviews

I watched this because Aaron Eckhart stars and it's hard to believe that he would choose a script that is truly terrible... unless someone either has something embarrassing on the man. And that must be the case. While Eckhart tries his best to be the wheelchair bound man who tries to get into people's minds to "evict" demons, this dud cannot be redeemed from its own demons.

So what is so terrible about this film? It's as if the writers just came up with a concept and were too lazy to think about whether it made sense. And the director just allows an amorphous concept - something about demons possessing a body by convincing the mind of the victim that it was getting what it desires in a dream state - it is all lightly explained gobbledygook. The awkwardness in the script plays out among the actors and it feels like a poor man's B-movie. As others have said, it's something akin to Constantine meets Inception and the Exorcist, borrowing concepts and not doing a very convincing job of getting the audience to buy into the mumbo jumbo jargon that they hope you won't too think too deeply about.

Here's the entire movie in a nutshell, clichés excluded. Man whose family was killed by a person who was possessed by a demon agrees to exorcise a boy who is possessed by a demon that he believes is the same. There are no real twists in this movie and even every semi- twist in the ending can be guessed by the audience by a writer who thought he was really clever. We've seen this all before a million times and much better. Poor Aaron. This one is a real career killer.
