I can't call it a success, but it is certainly an outstanding failure, an attempt to broaden the horizons of a stale genre with real discussion of the matters that consume its maker.

It's true "Dominion" is a better prequel than "The Beginning", but in the end, that's not really saying much in either case.

I like both versions of Exorcist IV about the same... It's too bad that a clever editor couldn't have taken the best bits from both films and put them together into a co-directed, successful whole.

Neither a masterpiece nor a failure, it will probably appeal mostly to those with knowledge of its death and miraculous resurrection.

After 32 years, two sequels, and two prequels, The Exorcist remains an impossible act to follow.

"Dominion" isn't outright horror, and a welcome relief from the days where shots are shorter than the hairs on our heads.

Apparently, Schrader never intended to make a horror movie, much to the dismay of the studio.

tiresome and humdrum instead of thrilling

An ambitious failure.

Dominion is only incrementally better than Exorcist: The Beginning and, with both films sharing so many story elements, Harlin is guilty of merely rearranging the deck chairs on Schrader's Titanic.

Schrader's intelligent, quietly subversive pic emphasizes spiritual agony over horror ecstasy, while paying occasional lip-service to the need for scares.
May 25, 2005
The flick is still plagued by occasional tedious patches, bad special effects and silly dialogue (it seems no one caught those problems on either director's watch).
May 25, 2005
Intriguing, then, mainly for historical and comparison purposes.

One of the best American horror films in years.

The frights, the scares, they just weren't there.
