The Vatican’s senior exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, investigates a case of alleged possession of a youngster, which prompts him to discover a long-running plot that the Vatican has kept secret from the public.

Russell Crowe’s brilliance reappears in The Pope’s Exorcist after a period of hiding out. It is noteworthy that Crowe gave a standout performance in the movie, and it is clear that he genuinely liked playing Father Amorth. The writers deserve praise for crafting a complex character whose worst nightmare is losing to France in the World Cup.


The Pope’s Exorcist is a fascinating movie that centers on Father Gabriele Amorth’s worst career regret when a woman faked possession. It is based on the actual diaries of Father Amorth, the top exorcist in the Vatican. This film depicts actual exorcism cases that Amorth handled over his career rather than being an exposé of the Vatican’s well-known exorcism practices. It centers on one such case.

The Russell Crowe-starring film, influenced by The Exorcist, has levitation, priests wielding crosses, a child chained to a bed, and sequences of things moving by themselves. Japanese horror also had a significant impact on the movie’s scary features.

Father Amorth, a real-life individual chosen by the Vatican to perform exorcisms, is portrayed in The Pope’s Exorcist. A family that inherits an abbey in Spain relocates there temporarily to oversee the restoration efforts. At this point, Henry, Julia’s son, is taken over by the devil, who specifically demands to meet Amorth. Amorth realizes upon entering the convent that he must overcome an overwhelming obstacle against a powerful devil.

Compared to Jared Leto’s accent in House of Gucci, his Italian accent has an advantage. But Peter DeSouza-Feighoney, who portrays Henry, stands out as the star, giving a masterful, violent, and sensitive portrayal. Another scene at the end that features a woman covered in blood is inspired by Japanese horror.

Ratings: 3/5

Funny moments are an excellent diversion from the ongoing strain. Because of the story’s steady development, suspense builds up over time and eventually reaches a crescendo. Even though the film ultimately follows a traditional horror structure, it manages to amuse audiences, largely with Crowe’s fantastic sense of comedy. As a result, it was given three stars out of five.

Julius Avery was the film’s director. Doug Belgrad, Michael Patrick Kaczmarek, and Jeff Katz were responsible for its production. Franco Nero, Alex Essoe, Daniel Zovatto, and Russell Crowe are the stars of it. On April 7, 2023, it was made available. Soon, it will be accessible on OTT.
