Trivia

The role of Butler was always written with Joel McHale in mind, however, Butler was "the worst character in the script", according to the director and writer. After struggling to improve the role, he then imagined what he thought McHale would be like if he had gone to the Army instead of college, and worked in law enforcement instead of entertainment. After that, writing became easier and the character grew. See more »

Goofs

Fr Mendoza, while drinking whisky, tells Sarchie he's "NA, not AA", but addiction recovery doesn't work like that. Perhaps there are recovery courses that sanction alcohol consumption, but NA is certainly not among them.

One of the strongest principles of NA is that the addict has to avoid ALL addictive substances, of which alcohol is a principal or "gateway" drug - avoiding even non-alcohol or "virgin" cocktails because they mimic the lifestyle associated with substance abuse. NA members count sobriety as time without ANY drugs or alcohol, and one sip of an alcoholic beverage resets the counter back to zero days. See more »

Quotes

Sarchie: I think the Addams family lives here.

Sarchie: You know, uh, the last time we took somebody else's job, you almost got eaten.
Butler: Yeah, if something eats me here, feel free to say "I told you so."

nothing we haven't seen before
11 October 2014 | by sonekkenSee all my reviews

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.
