THE RITE (PG-13)
NEW LINE CINEMA (2011)
Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Colin O'Donoghue, Alicia Braga, Ciaran Hinds, Rutger Hauer & more.
A young Catholic priest has his doubts and believes that demonic possession is all just superstitious
rumours and hear say. He travels to Rome to study at the Vatican where they are teaching classes on
demonic possession. Shortly after he is placed with Father Lucas, played by Anthony Hopkins who
is a strong believer and has witnessed it first hand. He takes the young man under his wing and out
in the field to help him with exorcisms so the priest can experience it for himself. These exorcisms
become to real and also makes him face the demons up close and personal. I'm not a big fan of the
religious type films, but anything with Anthony Hopkins is going to be good. This is one of the best
films of this genre done in the vein of THE EXORCIST.
