Father Amorth is a known Vatican Exorcist. He helps "Exorcist" director William Friedkin in his search to learn more about exorcism. Throughout the film, they discuss different aspects of the Catholic rite, and Father allows Friedkin to film an exorcism, an act not usually allowed by the Church. They film the 9th exorcism on an Italian woman called Christina. This seems to help her, and the family asks for the priest to bless her parents. This reveals that her seemingly cured possession may not have been as it seems. Written by cait

That´s the best thing that I have to say about this sad attempt of documentary. And being a lover of William Friedkin´s movies, ( Cruising, To Live and Die in L.A, The French Connection, 12 Angry Men and The Exorcist, of course), I just don´t get how he could fall so low to make this. The "exorcism" shown here looks so fake. Really disappointed. I really hope this is not his last work. I give this a 1.
