Certainly flawed.

NOBODY mentions that it's pouring rain for days on end here, which is just odd. Bana has a NYC accent that comes and goes. I have no idea why the daughter was haunted, the fate of the possessed girl is incredibly dumb, and the procedures of an exorcism simply seem way too easy.

But you know what? I enjoyed it for some incredible sound design and good use of directing the cliches of the exorcism movies. While The Conjuring was good all around in its haunted house/exorcism ideals, this just works on a mood and setting level.

Oh yeah, Joel McHale is in this as a double knife-wielding, BoSox cap wearing NYPD cop. I was seriously wondering if it was him the entire time.

Edgar Ramirez steals the show whenever he's on screen. The man is a terrific actor in anything he does.
