Quite good!

I decided to watch this film because I was attracted to the fact that it was based on a true story and that it is connected to Romania, which is very close to my city. Anyway, the film is quite good. The rating of 5 here really does not reflect the overall experience. I would give 10 for the setting, the interiors ( especially the room of the possessed girl and the churches and all the rooms ) as they have that 'something' that really stands out. The acting of all the actors, except the main actress is really good. The main reporter girl is kinda too ... hasty and there was something about her abrupt ways that did not click with me. Maybe she was meant to be like that. The last ( 2nd exorcism) was kinda non believable while the 1st one was on point. I am not 100% sure if they filmed all in Romania but it looked that way and that gave extra + to the story. My rating is 8. The film was entertaining and interesting 99% of the time.

Why was this made?

What the hell is this crap? What happened here? This is so by the numbers, so bland, so boring. Check it out: every single jump scare in this movie, which is pretty much every single "scare", is accomplished with an ear piercingly loud sound. Seriously. Every time. A car horn. A dogs bark. A bang on a door. And the sound is so ridiculously loud, while the talking is super low. Man I was just so effing angry. It pains your ears. And the sound is not even accompanied by scary imagery! Most of the times it's just a fake scare. With SUCH loud noise. JEEEZ. The best thing about the movie is Sophie Cookson. She does the best she can with a very uninteresting and boring script. There is very little gore, the little there is is OK. There are a couple of effects, they also work. But all in all it's just very tame. The story, I think, leans on being "true". Unfortunately it's still boring. I should probably give this a lower score, but if my mood were better I think I might have enjoyed it more. Also, the movie does have some qualities, it's just all to by the numbers.

No more exorcism movies, please!

A priest and several nuns are arrested after an exorcism in Romania goes wrong and a woman ends up dead. A young female, American reporter with an ax to grind shows up to tell a biased story about the tragedy. Her initial reporting suggests the priest was a dangerous zealot but later experiences suggest something supernatural may actually be happening. Let me start by saying I normally don't like these kind of movies. In fact, with the exception of The Exorcist part 1, I don't really like any of them. I only saw this because I really like its director, Xavier Gens, the man behind the memorably trippy French splatter fest Frontier(s) and the truly outstanding and very under-appreciated bomb shelter thriller The Divide. But The Crucifixion has none of the visual flare or shocking imagery of his past movies. I would actually say this is his worst movie by far and I can't help but wonder if he just had a house payment due or something because the whole effort feels kind of half hearted. This movie is painfully slow with a story that could be described as a thinner, cheaper remake of The Exorcism of Emily Rose. They draw inspiration from similar true stories and hit many of the same notes. But, The Crucifixion isn't nearly as good or well made as Scott Derickson's breakout hit. The lead actress is terrible. She's too young for her role and delivers her lines as though she's reading them off a cue card. The movie seems to realize how boring she, and the film itself, is so she starts showing a little skin around the half way point and, sadly, this is the most interesting thing about her. The supporting cast isn't dramatically better. So, with a weak cast of dull characters and a story that takes forever to get started and pads its run time with lame jump scares, I can't say there's any reason in the world to watch this movie. Maybe check out The Exorcist TV show instead. It's actually really good and its ratings are terrible so watch it while you still can and avoid The Crucifixion like the plague.
