This movie, plain and simply, sucked. Those looking for a good religious horror
movie should stick with the '70s classics: The Exorcist
, The Omen
, Rosemarys Baby

, and most of the other characters aren't much better

appeal than their talent) do nothing to elevate the shallow material. The filmmakers showed a total ineptitude at building tension, instead relying on cheap jump scares
throughout, which stop being scary after about the tenth time they try it (which is about thirty minutes in — seriously, there are that many
