A bright assistant D.A. investigates a gruesome hatchet murder and hides a clue he found at the crime scene. Under professional threats and an attempt on his life, he goes on heartbroken because evidence point to the woman he still loves.
A fictional retelling of the infamous Brink's Company robbery in Boston, which took place on January 17th, 1950, with a score of $2.700.000, and cost the American taxpayers $29.000.000 to apprehend the culprits with only $58.000 recovered.
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
William Friedkin interviewing father Amorth found he was a fan of The Exorcist and asked him if he could witness an exorcism saying "I would have thought no. It's not an entertainment." To his amazement he said "let me think about it" he recieved a reply just days later inviting him to one. See more »
This will not be popular amongst the religious but... I'm very sceptical when it comes to Satan and demons. Why? Why would Satan possess random Italian lady? A demon maybe, but Satan? No. I'm sure he has better things to do.
I hear the argument from religious people that it is to destroy a person's faith, or to steal their souls, but if you look at it logically, how many are lost to possession? Wouldn't it only increase a person's faith in God and religion, exorcisms always seem to be successful, excluding the odd one or two horror stories. The only thing it benefits is religion, and a person's faith in their God.
I honestly believe that if Satan existed, he would have a far bigger agenda, like control over a population, making people commit atrocities in his name, he would cause division, hate, encourage discrimination, he would control people through fear of sinning, and threats of eternal torture... Oh wait, that sounds like... RELIGION!
