2 ½ Stars: This Horror Movie Almost Had The
There are exorcists stationed all around the world. The Vatican have indeed sanctioned a program where each diocese would have an exorcist. This film is based on “true events”. I may believe that the film is indeed based on true events; if very "loosely". The 2011 film “The Rite” is based on the book “The Making of an Exorcist” by Rome-based author Matt Baglio which was published in 2009. Baglio participated in a seminar on exorcism by the Vatican …

** out of ****     Mikael Hafstrom went from "Evil" to "Derailed" to "1408", and now, he's gone to "The Rite".

Star Rating:         There are the possession movies that are really about nothing more than possession. You know these kinds of movies. They exist primarily for the late night movie crowds; they give the guys an excuse to make their dates scream by sneaking up on them and grabbing their shoulders. And then there are the movies that use possession not as a cheap horror gimmick, but as a means for a character or group of characters to come to terms with their faith. …
