A modern thriller in which faith battles reason, Ryder plays a young woman who becomes aware of a conspiracy to enable the Devil to walk the earth in human form. To defeat the prophesy, she must convince a respected New York crime journalist, who is devoid of faith, that he is in fact the target of the conspiracy.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Alas, look is everything here and storytelling and characters are next to nothing, so what emerges is oddly ineffectual and uninvolving -- visually striking set pieces set loose in a void."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"With the original Exorcist back at the multiplex, you don't need this pale copy."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Teenage horror fans can do much better."
‑ M. Faust, Common Sense Media
"An absolutely terrible movie, sloppily constructed and poorly executed."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"There's a good reason this lackluster fright-fest sat on the shelf for two years. It's nothing more than a tired Winona Ryder vehicle taking advantage of the topic du jour -- demonic possession."
‑ Jeanne Aufmuth, Palo Alto Weekly
"The tedious storytelling sucks the life and soul out of the characters far more effectively than Satan ever manages."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Odd camera angles, artfully dim lighting and showy tracking shots simply don't make up for suspense or intelligence."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"The anticlimactic, is-that-all-there-is ending winds everything up not with a bang, but a whimper."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Ryder seems serious enough, but there's no real evidence that she's even trying to act..."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Even a cameo by John Hurt fails to make this film worthwhile."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"[An] unholy mess of a flick."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Kaminski brings all the visual oomph one could ask for, but not enough narrative spine, momentum, or substance."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"Mood alone cannot energize this slow, simplistic, and anticlimactic Exorcist pretender."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"The result is well-photographed but frighteningly incoherent."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
"Just wall-to-wall goofiness."
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
