(2014) (Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror: A skeptical NYPD cop and an unorthodox priest team together to combat what may be cases of demonic possessions occurring around them.
- NYPD Sgt. Ralph Sarchie (ERIC BANA) has seen a lot during his beat patrolling rough neighborhoods in the South Bronx with his sarcastic cop partner Butler (JOEL McHALE). Married to Jen (OLIVIA MUNN) with whom he has a young daughter, Christina (LULU WILSON), Ralph pays more attention to work than them and has something of a sixth sense when it comes to receiving vibes about bad things.
That's recently included a few children being killed or put into harm's way, something that irritates Ralph to no end, and that somehow revolve around three former U.S. Marines, Jimmy (CHRIS COY), Mick Santino (SEAN HARRIS) and Lt. Griggs (SCOTT JOHNSEN), who served together in Iraq a few years earlier, encountered something there, and returned as changed men.
Unorthodox Jesuit priest Joe Mendoza (EDGAR RAMÍREZ) is sure all of that has something to do with demonic possession, especially when a woman he knows, Jane (OLIVIA HORTON), appears afflicted with just that. Yet, Ralph doesn't believe any of it, despite growing up as an altar boy.
But when he starts hearing things no one else does -- including static and children's voices on his police radio as well as old songs by The Doors -- he soon begins to believe that perhaps there is something otherworldly and even potentially dangerous behind the recent odd occurrences. He and Joe then team up to figure that out, all while Ralph's family ends up in danger from something supernatural lurking in their house.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're into horror films (particularly those revolving around possessions and such) and/or are fans of anyone in the cast, they might be interested.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For bloody violence, grisly images, terror throughout, and language.
