Prey for the Devil

Prey for the Devil

In response to a global rise in demonic possessions, the Catholic Church reopens exorcism schools to train priests in the Rite of Exorcism. On this spiritual battlefield, an unlikely warrior rises: a young nun, Sister Ann. Thrust onto the spiritual frontline with fellow student Father Dante, Sister Ann finds herself in a battle for the soul of a young girl and soon realizes the Devil has her right where he wants her.

    nothing special
    Sister Ann (Jacqueline Byers) is eager to learn exorcism despite it being a field only for priests. She is haunted by her childhood with her disturbed mother and an incident as a teenager. Father Quinn (Colin Salmon) allows the nun to attend the class despite the rules. She and fellow student Father Dante (Christian Navarro) battle a demon she believes to have possessed her mother in the past for the soul of a young girl.

    It's a possession movie. It's nothing new except she being female. I doubt even that is anything new. The only memorable horror is the eye scene. Everything else is either standard or unremarkable. Nothing stands out as really bad, but nothing impressed me either. There are some actors. Everybody is doing workmanlike work. This is a dime a dozen.

    The Voice
    Annie Kraja (Jacqueline Byers) has become a nun and is assisting at the St. Michael School of Exorcism in Boston. She is still haunted by her childhood growing up with a schizophrenic mother who she believed was possessed by a voice. Her mother claimed "the Voice" was after Annie, who would become a "chosen soldier." At the University it builds slow with whispers and then things get going about 20 minutes into the feature. Ann's interest in exorcism placed her in a group of priests as an observer. During the exorcism of a young girl named Natalie (Posy Taylor) Ann steps in and helps the priests who face danger. But the baptism by fire has just begun.

    This is one of the better exorcism films I have seen, perhaps the best since "The Exorcist" in regards to acting and realism. Jacqueline Byers was excellent in her role.
