Storyline

THE VATICAN TAPES follows the ultimate battle between good and evil - God versus Satan. Angela Holmes is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It's all up to Father Lozano to wage war for more than just Angela's soul, but for the world as we know it. Written by Pantelion Films

Possibly, the worse horror film about exorcism I've ever seen.
30 July 2015 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

I feel like I should not take a jab about how cheap the movie feels, but it feels cheap.

This is ironic considering how amazing the special effects were in the film. That's the thing about film making today. Any kid with a good lap top can due really good special effects.

It's too bad the same cannot be said of any kid with a camera. I'm glad this was not a found footage movie, though some of the film is seen though security cam footage and personal footage taken by head strikers and an exorcist. It's a straight narrative, but treating it like a found footage movie would have giving the filmmakers a better excuse.

I thought the acting talent in the movie was pretty good. They did the best with a story that had too many badly played angles. The demon they selected to exorcise was a little too bold and would have made them horror legends if they pulled it off right, but that did not happen.

Overall, watching this girl's soul being taken over by evil was not interesting at all. It was not creepy or scary. I just wanted it to be over with.
