Review: The Rite

Inspired by author Matt Baglio’s nonfiction book of the same name, director Mikael Håfström’s supernatural thriller traces the experiences of a young seminary student who discovers the true power of faith after being drafted into the Vatican’s Exorcism School and confronted by the forces of darkness.

I’m a big fan of Anthony Hopkins, I always watch any movie he is in but not every movie is great but he does have a few off movies. When I went to see The Rite I was expecting to see a full on Horror movie staring Anthony Hopkins, it was a good thriller but not the horror movie I was expecting. The dilemma of faith tied into believing in demons was an interesting story but I was expecting to see some more scary stuff thrown into the mix, but that wasn’t the case. Overall its a pretty good movie but could have been better.
