Hope 'The Vatican' Don't See This

'The Vatican Tapes' is yet another 'possession' horror movie. Seems like there's 5 - 10 every year. The only thing separating this from the rest is it's 'twist' of an ending. At first it seems like a neat surprise, but when looking back at the rest of the movie it becomes a waste. It's not the twist that's good, it's the idea that it leaves us with in the very final scene. This felt like a good setup to another movie. A movie that would've been more original and much more interesting/entertaining than this lame excuse for supernatural horror. There's nothing here that hasn't already been done ten times better in every other possession centered movie. Nothing. It plays more like a dumb farce. But at least it's short and full of stupidly crazy situations.

Three, while most of the film follows a prescribed route, I really liked the ending (unlike, say, Devil Inside where the ending was the worst part). Taken together, The Vatican Tapes may not break any new ground, but it does at least rise above the standard to provide a decent night o...
