Pena que, em vez de merecer seu próprio capítulo nos livros de História do Cinema, tenha se revelado digno apenas de uma nota de rodapé.

Harlin amps up the sound effects and gore in an attempt to disguise the absence of any genuine scares.
September 5, 2004
[Harlin's] skill has never been proven and here, with effects that make the original look state-of-the-art, we see a film that is trapped in empty suspense and faulty terror.

...an interesting little piece of entertainment: stylized, ambitious, and filled with scenes in which the element of creepiness seems genuine rather than synthetic.

The hellishly long buildup works, but the payoff is predictable, pitting Merrin against a contortionist white devil in a blue dress.

Stellan Skarsgard deserves another movie. This cruel, nasty, ugly prequel deserves to be exorcised right off the marquee.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

This Exorcist prequel is more or less what used to be called a B-movie. Even B-movies, however, had to please audiences on some level.

Never underestimate the box-office appeal of a boring horror film.

August 29, 2004
A lot of noisy tomfoolery that never coalesces into a solid horror yarn, lacking even the beloved pea soup 'n' rotating noggins that made us quake way back when.

Working Nazis into the satanic brew certainly ups the evil ante, but it doesn't help make Exorcist: The Beginning a worthwhile movie.

Although Old Scratch isn't strong enough to fight off the Baltimore Catechism for very long, the scares are good enough.

The priest grabs a rifle and blasts away: Father Merrin, action hero.

Boring as hell.

Warner's late-game recruiting of a vulgarian like Renny Harlin to tack on some barf-bag moments is simply an insult to fans of the original.

Blood, flies, maggots, ravenous hyenas, power failures, grave-digging and much ineffectual voodoo ensue.
August 26, 2004
Exceedingly lame production has few frights and not much story either.

August 26, 2004
Not unlike Exorcist II. It's a huge mess with passages of great beauty, juxtaposed with a few truly scary moments and a bunch of hokum and stupidity.

August 26, 2004
Yet another film where a loyal black man dies to save his "master," a Hollywood trend that's downright sickening.

...yes, it is as bad as you've heard.
