ThatReviewer.wordpress.com Reviews ‘The Vatican Exorcisms’

*SPOILER ALERT* NOTE: I’ll just rate two categories for this movie which is the story and the music. I can’t really rate the CGI and acting in this movie since it’s a real documentary. 2nd NOTE: I really believe that it’s a true documentary because I actually can’t find any trailers for this movie. Another proof that I have is that the scares were unexpected. In most if not all the horror movies that I know, I knew when the jumpscare is gonna happen because it’s very scripted. In this documentary the scares were unexpected. STORY – 8/10 I really liked the plot of the movie. The only thing that I hated was that the movie was really short (1 hour and 10 mins i think) and the ending. I agreed with the people that I was watching the movie with when they said “How did the crew not catch up to Joe when he ran out the doors?” and another question on my mind is if Joe safely made it back to USA or not because Joe’s wife was explaining things happening to Joe after the documentary, which I thought that after the documentary, Joe went missing. I don’t know if it was just me but it wasn’t very clear to me. There were some really good scares in the movie which I really liked. I’m actually writing this review on my laptop instead of my desktop because I’m really scared to have my back against the whole room.  hehe. My friend said that the movie was not that scary, but I think that they were just expecting jumpscares...

Blood Guts UK Reviews ‘The Vatican Exorcisms’

When a mysterious disc enters the office with the words ‘The Vatican Exorcisms’ printed on it we’re obliged to hit play. When up boots a found footage film set in Italy the age old repetitians of genre favourites come to mind including ‘The Tunnel’ and ‘Episode 50’. A genre that has churned out the same film a hundred times before bringing nothing new but the same mistakes. Then things turn weird… No information on the internet, no IMDb page and no cover letter all, all while watching the unnerving reality of what could possibly be the first BloodGuts snuff movie. Joe Marino (The actual director) sets out to Italy to uncover the Devil in the Vatican. Sex orgies, missing women paedophilia and unholy behaviour all within the closed walls of the capital of Catholism. Taking his camera crew and an ambition to find the truth, they take up the opportunity to shadow an exorcist. Padre Luigi teaches them the darker side of religion and the effects it has on the church. Sometimes the truth is best hidden and Morino soon finds out that the Devil may be closer than he thinks.  Regurgitated story? Check. Found Footage cliché? Check. Unforgettable cast? Check. Is there any saving this?  What  director Joe Marino has managed to capture on film is hands down the scariest film of 2013 and within 70 minutes is sheer terror. Paced with perfection and quite possibly the greatest exorcisms on film. The choice to rid the screen of silly stereotypes and a lack of CGI, hovering bodies and pea soup, what seperates ‘Vatican’ from other exorcism movies is its faithfulness to...
