Added DiffLines:

** If you happen to understand Italian, watching the movie in English and hearing the heavy Eastern-European accents of some of the supposedly Italian secondary characters (while some scenes of movie were shot in Italy and Vatican City, many were filmed in Bucharest, Romania) ruins the suspension of disbelief, although it does add a layer of unintentional fun.


* 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 Saint Peter (who apparently requested to be crucified upside-down, feeling himself unworthy to share Christ's death) and his successor, 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".

* CriticProof: While a massive financial hit, both critics and audiences hated the film, to the point where it earned a rare F on Cinemascore.

* CriticProof: While a massive financial hit, both critics and audiences hated the film, to the point where it earned a rare F on Cinemascore. Then again, it's hard ''not'' for a wide-release horror film to be a hit when it was produced at the cost of only [[NoBudget a million dollars.]]
