REVIEWS

Great performances! It was interesting to see a theology professor attempt to practice his faith, he's a very sympathetic character. The battle between faith and personal flaws was executed perfectly. I especially liked the Priest's discussion with Cecilio, encouraging him to find hope in God when facing such angry evil. Great job directing this fine cast!

Good film, i enjoyed it, the acting of the main character was rather good I didnt liked the special FX effects, not strong enough and kinda amateurish at times Some jump scares were good but the others were too easy to anticipate The story have a good development and the demon introduced there was unknown to me until i researched on the web and indeed found him The ending credits and music are really nice additions to this ! Thanks

I fully appreciate this movie - Great job - Focusing the movie dynamics on the exorcist character was very relevant and thrilling !

I could not wait to watch it! Instead of copying William Friedkin’s Masterpiece, the director decided to tell a story of doubt and faith and the struggle takes place inside the main character’s head. The film is also beautifully directed with very-long shots that give us the opportunity to bond with all the characters. I love the photography as well! It reminded me the underrated film of Paco Plaza (Verónica) with both more intimate and realistic approach. I really loved every part of it even the Demon which scared me so much! Well done!
