An American priest decides to attend a school for exorcism in Italy where he meets Father Lucas Trevant. This movie was directed by the Mikael Håfström who bought us the 2007 film 1408 and that movie was a refreshing horror flick with some really chilling and creepy scenes, But this movie is not that scary, actually this movie was kind of boring in some parts. Anthony Hopkins was great in the movie but the movie lacks on scares and the story has been done before so many times that it is getting old.

The Rite (2011)

Michael Kovak (Colin O'Donoghue) is a priest-in-training who has lost his way and quite possibly, his faith.

Michael is understandably skeptical and wonders whether Father Lucas’s subjects which include a pregnant 16 year old girl and a young boy, are possessed, or simply i...

A Rare Dissapointment From Anthony Hopkins

The big draw for ‘The Rite’ would seem to be Sir Anthony Hopkins. Despite the previews indicating otherwise, he’s actually a co-star in this film. The real central character here is relative newcomer, Colin O’Donoghue. Colin plays Michael Kovak, an aimless young man who studied for the priesthood, but is undecided about actually being ordained. He seems more interested in escaping his father’s plans for him to take over the family funeral home than weighing his true beliefs.

Hopkins plays a Jesuit priest, Father Lucas Trevant, a rather unorthodox, but well respected ‘expert’ on exorcisms. When Kovak indicates his reluctance to fully embrace the priesthood, he is asked to consider a course of study in this area and is eventually paired up with Trevant. Ever skeptical, Kovak continuall...
