The Rite of Exorcism: Myth, Mystery & Hope (2011)

1/2 (out of 4)

Quite often I recommend bad movies simply because they are so incredibly awful that you can't help but either laugh at them or have a good time with them. Most of the time these are horror or science fiction movies but I think this is the first time I've watched a documentary that would fit into this category for fans who love awful movies. This documentary features interviews with a couple priests and other experts on the subject of exorcisms. That's pretty much the subject of this film but for the life of me I can't figure out what the purpose of this thing was. It's so badly made that you can't help but be shocked at how poor some of the re-enactments are. I mean seriously, just take a look at the opening possession sequence, which is just so bad that it makes stuff from The Asylum look like the work of Orson Welles. Even worse is a sequence later where a possession is shown and we get some of the worst sound effects you're ever going to hear. These re-enactments are so bad that you really can't help but be amazed at their badness and slightly entertained. The spoken words here aren't much better as they're just rather flat and I'm not sure what they were trying to do unless it was warn the world that they had better go to church or else. There's no question that this is a really, really bad movie but I guess it deserves some credit for being the first documentary to ever enter a field of the "so awful you must see" list.
