The Rite Review

Bella, bella Italia! Once again, Italy delivers on the spectacular filming locations. Cobblestone roads, marble pillars, and classic architecture. The lighting in this film is quite pleasant. I could have done without the mortuary scenes, not very pleasing to view, but I suppose essential for plot lines. Father Lucas’ (Anthony Hopkins) home does not look very appealing and looks like it would smell absolutely revolting. However, with much cleaning and some renovating could be a great place to live.

Much can be said for lead actor Colin O’Donoghue. His breath-taking blue eyes are offset by his dark locks. I have to say he looks really fine with his Roman collar as well. Must be something about that whole “unavailable” thing. All I can say is that if he were my priest, I would be at church every Sunday.

I have to say he is pretty much the only eye-candy in this movie. Anthony Hopkins-creeeeepy. And sorry boys - not really a lot of attractive ladies in this film. However, Alice Braga does have a sexy, sultry voice.

I would love an opportunity to live in Rome for two months to study exorcism. The demonic possession, however, no thank you. It is certainly not good for the soul and does terrible things to the skin and spine.


Forgive me, Father...but
you are HOT!


  1. Well. At least we'll be in hell together. That's freakin' hilarious.

  2. I will never voluntarily watch this or any other horror movie, but your review made me laugh. As did your other reviews. Have you considered doing twitter reviews?
