I get very upset when I hear about movies with demons being “based on a true story” because it rules out the possibility there’ll be demons in the movie.
I love demons. Wish they were real. But they aren’t.
The Rite is based on a true story. And based on a book. I don’t know if its demons that Tony Hopkins the priest is going to be squaring up against, but there’s definitely some demonic possession happening and in my very crappy research I discovered that the story focuses on the politics and controversies regarding exorcisms as well as the exorcisms themselves. I’m cool with that. I like the idea of Mr. Hopkins: The Priest Edition™. I hope this is a fun, twisty, and spooky little ride through a battle of faith and science.

1. This is the last screening we will be doing on this version of CHUD.com. In less than a week this place is getting a massive overhaul. The biggest overhaul in the history of the site. Brand new face. Brand new engine. Brand new forums and community features. It’s a long time coming, and I am thankful you’ve stuck with us through some tough times. What is one aspect of the site we’d BETTER retain?
2. Did you hear about GUY.com, the new site we’re launching? What do you think?
3. I personally never get tired of movies involving priests and demonic forces. Does that make me a deranged individual or just a good genre fan?
4. I always as that you subscribe to our mailing list, Twitter account, Facebook Page, and YouTube Channel… so if you haven’t, please do. And if you are a fan of useless chatter and bitchy weirdness, why not follow me too?
