Storyline

An eleven-year-old boy starts throwing temper tantrums, vomiting on, and attacking people, and swearing uncontrollably. Furniture begins to move on its own when he is around, and he doesn't remember any of it. After giving up on the Protestants, the boys parents turn to the Catholic church for help. Father Bowden is a World War II veteran who is experiencing nightmares, flashbacks, and other personal problems, including alcoholism. He is recruited by the Archbishop to perform a series of exorcisms. This is the true account of the last exorcism known to have been done by the Catholic church. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Goofs

In one of the early scenes, Father Bowden shows a college classroom images of the devil. One of the images was the popular devil head drawn by the artist 'Coop'. The problem is that this movie is set in the 1950s and Coop hadn't even been born by that time. See more »

Too bad about the kid
16 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

The biggest problem with this movie is the kid. Ginger hair and freckles? Possessed by the Devil. Its not scary, its hilarious. The kid does a decent job, but he is horribly miscast. Timothy Dalton redeems things a bit with a convincing performance, which must have been almost impossible given the obvious handicap.

As a story it almost succeeds. As a scary movie it sucks.
