For 2,000 years the Vatican has recorded evidence of evil. May God have mercy on their souls.
"The Vatican Tapes" is from polydiafimismenes horror movies of 2015 and hence expectations are expected high. This film directed by Mark Neveldine, which in the past has given us action movies like "Crank" and "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance". Not awesome CV but this shouldn't prevents us from giving another opportunity assessment in the field of terror this time. Well the Neveldine and his friends at staple piece managed to xenerwsoyn the mass audiences who believed in their efforts.
"The Vatican Tapes ' stylistic moves somewhere between the classic" Exorcist "(obviously not attempting any comparison) and in" End of Days "(1999) but at much lower levels. Starts with a reference to cases of daimonismwn and continues by showing how a nice old lady was occupied by a malevolent demonic entity which harms with sly ways people of surroundings. After the mental hospital can't help taking action the Vatican by encouraging an active priest (Michael Peña) who diagnosed promptly metaphysics threat. The group is confronted with a greater evil that threatens not only his girlfriend but all of humanity. I managed to stop it?
The cast and the interpretations are one of the most "definitely" papers "The Vatican Tapes" Although no interpretation does not impress nor will make us to memorize them. Maybe even some roles might not fit so well with specific actors. The possessed girl (Olivia Taylor Dudley) stand out slightly from the others but this is due more to its native "darkness" role than some awful acting's release. Another strong point lies in the special effects but we are talking about something as expected and the available budget.
In the movie besides English made and using the Aramaic language predominantly used in the ancient Middle East.
To these we can add the last twenty interest where the exorcism and there is some tension. The rest of the film is indifferent and helpless to scare (with few exceptions) or-even worse-to preserve the interest of the Viewer. The directorial approach of Neveldine displays tremendous weaknesses both in technical subjects (e.g. bad shots) and in general hardware management issues. Scenario shows encapsulated in chiloserbirismenes ideas and similar embarrassing situations.
If you haven't seen horror film with exorcism (unlikely), then the "The Vatican Tapes" will have something to tell you. Like a horror film but proves too inferior circumstances, busting outwardly a picture of unexpected fire, eventually collapsing under the weight of cliche and repetition.

Measured moments of genuine horror and shock, interesting escalation to the finale with the necessary but few doses of darkness, meticulous special effects.
Lack of terror, tension and suspense in a large part of the film, indifferent plot without inspirational ideas, predictable characters, excessive use of familiar cliches, slow progress, Threepenny direction.
