* NotScreenedForCritics: This was cited as the likely reason the film opened with blockbuster numbers in its first week and then virtually disappeared in subsequent weeks.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Virtually every claim made related to Catholicism is the ''opposite'' of how it's actually practiced. For example, the priests claim at one point that a possessee would not be repelled by inverted crosses, as they are blasphemous symbols -- forgetting that an inverted cross is actually known as a "Petrine Cross", a holy symbol associated with the ''pope''. At another point, they claim that it is important to recognize the identity and infernal rank of the demon, when the Catholic guidelines are to ''completely avoid'' playing into the demon's ego and simply treat it as "the devil, an enemy of Christ".
