"Choosing not to believe in the devil won't protect you from him." Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs) stars in this supernatural thriller that reveals the devil's reach to even one of the holiest places on earth. Inspired by true events chronicled by Rome-based journalist Matt Baglio, this exorcism drama follows a skeptical seminary student (The Tudors' Colin O'Donoghue) attending an exorcism school at the Vatican. While in Rome, he's sent to apprentice with an unorthodox priest (Hopkins) who introduces him to the darker side of his faith. Also starring I Am Legend's Alice Braga, Rome's Ciarán Hinds, Harry Potter's Toby Jones and Blade Runner's Rutger Hauer, this haunting chiller demonstrates how a disillusioned young priest ultimately finds his true faith by facing pure evil.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Anthony Hopkins is as excellent as ever, but he's no match for The Rite's dawdling pace and lack of chills -- or Colin O'Donoghue's tentative performance in the leading role.
