Despite his serious crisis of faith, trainee priest Michael (O’Donoghue) is recruited to learn the ways of the exorcist. He’s sent to Rome and meets veteran demon-cleanser Father Lucas Trevant (Hopkins). But can doubting Michael overcome his concerns when something goes badly wrong with Trevant’s latest job?
Hopkins does his thing, and Håfström leaves him alone to do it well. Though it’s doubtful this will be remembered as a horror touchstone in years to come, there’s enough entertainment to be found within. Just don’t walk in expecting to become a believer by the end.
