The cast of this movie is impressive, but it is also a problem: there were too many plots points and some are irrelevant. An example is Dr. Orantes. There were very little intensity in the movie, which was also due to too many plot points. This movie will be much better if it cuts off some characters and plot points and focuses on the other. It tried to tackle so many things that it ended up only scratching the surfaces. Even more, this problem made the ending pointless. I'm not sure why critics and people liked this movie so much, but it's definitely not good.
This movie IS disturbing, but it is DISTURBINGLY STUPID AND PRETENTIOUS.
The only good thing about this movie is the cinematography, which was ok. The ritual was stupid and pointless. The writers just wanted to draw some circles and triangles and letters and expect them to make some sense. At no point did I gave a damn about the characters. The guy who performed the ritual was pretty much an asshole. The end of the movie made absolutely no sense and was so pretentious. All of those positive ratings are extremely inaccurate.
First of all, the critics who gave this movie a tomato and audience comments that are 3 stars or greater are fake or joking. Very incompetent movie. Boring, the plot made no sense, especially the end. Those faceless nuns on the poster, they literally appeared once, in a dream!!! They tried to give the background of the main character by using a bunch of dreams, which was lazy and the background doesn't even matter. Oh my god there were so many whispering in the movie. It's very hard sometimes to hear what they were talking about. There were some gross scenes, which made me hate the movie even more. In the end, the movie was boring, not scary in the slightest, and nonsense.
This next comment is spoiler, but I don't really care and you shouldn't care either because you shouldn't waste time on this movie:
I still don't get why they tried to change her name to Agatha, it was so stupid and there was not explanation whatsoever. They might as well changed her name to Trump or John Cena and the movie wouldn't be any different.
