No consensus yet.
There are no critic reviews yet for Exorcist Chronicles. Keep checking Rotten Tomatoes for updates!
The structure of a mockumentary within a mockumentary is odd and makes things indecipherable, in the beginning primarily, but throughout the film, it suffers from confusing crosscutting.
The score is atrociously overdone and does not sync with events onscreen for the most part. The acting is even worse, and sometimes makes the film unwatchable but certainly wholly unbelievable insofar as the characters' emotions. I don't mind the documentary method of filming and honestly most of the shots are better coordinated than handheld crap in large budget mainstream pieces.
I do mind that the acting is so bad that it betrays an otherwise decent script structure. Sadly, there's no scares here and no one ever addresses why all possessed people are bed-ridden. When the "exorcisms" themselves are performed, it is little more than cheap rips from the classic bar-setter "The Exorcist".
If exorcism is your thing like how zombies are my thing, then you may find something worthwhile here, but with this low level of acting, I seriously doubt it.
