The Rite is a story about an American seminary student who attends exorcism school at the Vatican and finds faith through encounters with demonic forces.

The cast of The Rite includes Anthony Hopkins, Colin O’Donoghue, Alice Braga, Ciaran Hinds and Toby Jones.

The Rite received mixed reviews from the critics.

“For an hour “The Rite,” as scripted by Michael Petroni, delivers the expected, but with panache… The supporting cast is unusually strong…” -Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

“O’Donoghue is so stunningly uncharismatic that he kills whatever possibilities this picture from the director of the silly-scary-smart “1408″ had.” -Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel

“I found myself drawn in. It is sincere. It is not exploitative; a certain amount of screaming, frothing and thrashing comes with the territory.” -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“The Rite commits the supreme sin of making the devil dull.” -Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
