Too silly to be scary, and a bit too dull to be a midnight-movie guilty pleasure.

[Director Derrickson] really deliver the creepy goods here, providing an apt climax for as taut and credible a movie involving demonic possession as you're likely to see.

Preposterous film plagued by idiotic sound cues, a senseless plot and force-fed jump-scares

Any serious consideration of its themes are overwhelmed by the aggressive deployment of horror clichés.

While the supernatural side of the film suffers a flaw or two, its central conflict works.

The fact that it is based on a true to life story is what makes this movie scary. If you indulge your thoughts on the underlying reasons why and how the real-life story came to be, then you may get scared of the movie.
