Critic Reviews for The Vatican Tapes

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (6)

The film from director Mark Neveldine is so over the top that one can't help but imagine how the Wayans brothers might lampoon it, then embarrassingly recall them doing exactly so in "A Haunted House."

Mark Neveldine's first solo directorial effort is a silly, shrieky and eminently watchable exorcism thriller.

The director Mark Neveldine deploys queasy lighting and a trembling score, but his best choice is to let Ms. Dudley stare at us. She conveys unnerving shifts in self-awareness and sinister intent with her eyes.

At no point does this film strive to be more than a second-rate version of what it is: a halfhearted attempt to make some scratch while pretending the devil exists. Some trick.

Audience Reviews for The Vatican Tapes

I really laughed out loud in the theater, the worst way to spend 10 dollars!!!! terrible. terrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Outstanding, see it as soon as you can before they start showing it at midnight. I see, (if this one's a success) future editions hopefully with Pena fighting evil along with Djimon, they make a good team.
