Creepy and eerie exorcism movie about an unbalanced scientific who has to save a kid from the claws a heinous demon
12 August 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

An acceptable watchable exorcism thriller but with some failures , gaps and flaws . This ¨Incarnate¨ is a creepy and horror film about exorcism, professionally , though flawed , directed by Brad Peyton . For two thousand years the Vatican has recorded evidence of evil . May God have mercy on their souls . Truly terrifiyng story following the ultimate battle between good and evil - God versus demon . An 11-year-old boy named Cameron Sparrow (David Mamouz) is attacked by a hooded stranger who attempts to murder him. However, Cameron kills him instead and looks at the camera with red eyes, revealing that he is actually possessed by a demon named "Maggie¨ (Natalija Nogulich) . A wheelchair-bound scientist named Ember (Aaron Eckhart) , mentally ill for a car crash , must save the young boy from the grips of a demon with powers never seen before, while facing off the horrors of his past . In the waking world , Ember actually is limited and uses a wheelchair . Meanwhile, Dr. Seth Ember with the ability to enter the subconscious minds of the possessed approaches a man at a club and makes him realize he is dreaming . Later on , Ember deals with a Dutch mother Lindsey (Carice Van Houten) that is divorced from her drunk father Dan (Matt Nable) about the possessed son Cameron . The unhinged little boy is subsequently examined and possession is suspected , and the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined .There is something dark and sinister inside Cameron , a nasty demon that goes bersek and he wants to eject it . Ember's helper Oliver (Keir O'Donnell ) and Riley (Emily Jackson) warn him that the demon have begun to adapt to Doctor's efforts and that soon he may not be able to geta away back to reality . Seth reveals to the overprotective mummy his child has been with a demon who has possessed his body . It's all up to Doctor Ember to wage war for more than just boy's soul , but for the world as we know it . He boy getting sicker by the time , being really possessed , as a demon into his body and gone amok . There are some things best kept in secret. Faith has failed us.

Horror picture shot in fits and starts with incoherent plot , regarding a ghastly possession , as a boy suffering from the effects of being possessed by the devil . Horrifying and terrifying images about a possessed kid by a malevolent and heinous spirit causing creepy , scary and terrible moments ; then , a doctor must do battle with an ancient satanic force to save the soul of the strange boy . A rare film about exorcism in similar style to the recent ¨The Vatican tapes¨ and the classic ¨The Exorcist¨ 1973 by William Friedkin . This latter movie remains still startling and engrossing with every viewing , it expanded countless sequels and imitations , one of them is this one , though , of course, it is far cry from the original Exorcist . Genuinely scary moments overcome some obvious plot devices . This is a juicy terrifying material fashioning an iconic diabolic possession, providing screams , thrills , shocks and chilling scenes . It has an extremely known premise that spawns the film in ups and downs . All semblance of plausibility is extracted , leaving a main cast of fine actors : Aaron Eckhart , David Mazouz , Carice van Houten , Catalina Sandino Moreno who replaced Rosario Dawson , to show their wide skills . The support cast is pretty good , such as : Keir O'Donnell ,Matt Nable, Emily Jackson, Tomas Arana , Paul Vincent O'Connor and Natalija Nogulich as the astonishing devil .

It delivers a scary and eerie ambient thanks to an expert photographer , Dana Gonzales . As well as a frightening , suspenseful and chilling musical score by Andrew Lockington . Being efficiently produced by Jason Blum , Kaylene Carlson , Phillip Dawe and Brad Peyton himself . This non-sense , late night horror picture was decently directed by Brad Peyton , though with no originality and it has some flaws and gaps . Brad Peyton is a good writer , producer and filmmaker who has directed a few acceptable films , such as : ¨San Andres¨ , ¨Journey 2: The Mysterious Island¨, ¨Project Rampage¨ . Rating : 6/10 . Passable and decent exorcism/horror movie . No for squamish .
