I haven't seen EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING which is always considered a failure. In my opinion, DOMINION is decent prequel to THE EXORCIST. It could create the battle between good and evil in man's heart so compelling and engaging. With an experience to write a movie like TAXI DRIVER and THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST, I think it's an easy job for Paul Schrader to direct this movie. DOMINION has a similar theme, actually.
Stellan Skarsgård is perfect casting as a young Max von Sydow, but this is more a sorcerer's showdown of a film than a true religious exorcism. The film is filled with big plotholes and unnecessary characters. The film has potential in the start, but it falls apart.
Yeah. This one's so underrated it took me forever to discover it. Not saying it's great but compared to it's irrelevancy I'm just surprised I hadn't heard of it sooner. It's not very good, but it has it's moments, and I probably enjoy it more than any other Exorcist sequel or rip off.
