Two stars only because of Anthony Hopkins. It really deserves no stars at all for being a blatant piece of Catholic propaganda. The rubbish at the end of the movie when they do their little follow-up on the where-a-bouts and goings-on in the lives of the main characters is pathetic; the attempt to give the movie some sort of credibility. If you're looking for a bit of evil to brighten up your

Decent flick. It will get lost in the sand of times, but definitely worth renting.

Utterly boring and lacking of anything slightly exciting. Great performance by Sir Anthony Hopkins as always but not even he could save this , what truly is an interesting and exciting script, from the lazy and talentless directing of this film. Don't bother with this one.

Write your review here...Demons Walk Among Us. In 1973 William Friedkin?s The Exorcist invaded the dreams of millions; in 2005 Scott Derrickson revealed the true story of the possession of 19 ? year- old Emily Rose in The Exorcism of Emily Rose. In the summer of 2010 Daniel Stamm haunted theaters with the documentary of a real life exorcism in The Last Exorcism. This winter prepare to be haunted

Washington Post
Hafstrom largely ignores the progress made by his demon-banishing predecessors and delivers a palatable PG-13 thriller that's safe, soft and sinfully cliched. Full Review
Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle
For all the hellfire histrionics and well-timed jump scares, there is actual, admirable intellect behind The Rite. Full Review

Arizona Republic
Hafstrom creates a nice, creepy vibe, especially for the first part of the movie, which has a menacing atmosphere. Too bad he doesn't sustain it. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
The Rite becomes more ludicrous as it goes along, with more than a few lines of dialogue from Michael Petroni's over-the-top screenplay eliciting unintended titters. Full Review
Joe Leydon
While marred by cheap tricks and borderline camp, picture comes off as a largely low-key, intelligent effort. Full Review
