Maybe a rip off of all the piss poor exorcism movies that popped up in the 70s. The makers of this film have tried to take it in other directions with sub-plots and a ridiculous twist, but it ultimately falls on its arse as we're subjected to more of the same; teenage girl speaking in a gruff voice, reciting latin, demanding sexual satisfaction, mutilating herself and masturbating. Admittedly, that actually sounds quite good on paper, but when the Exorcist already exists, there really doesn't need to be a third or fourth rate copy of it.

Peter Riegert was never more adorable (you wonder why Izzy would turn him down, he's so cute and sweet, even for decadently famous Jeroen Krabbe). Sylvia Miles makes you laugh with every appearance. A gentle movie soundtracked by a woman's a capella singing group - a woman's story in every way. I fought it but I fell in love with it nevertheless.

(au) wrote: A am I living the story or is it just my imagination type of movie that has been better in other movies like In the Mouth of Madness. This was one that I had always wanted to see and watched it in the late night hour. While it is pretty ho hum with pacing, the story within the story does provide some suspense. Oh and the makeup of the guy in the story is pretty effective. What ever happened to Jenny Wright?
