THE VATICAN TAPES (2015) Review
A tedious and boring exorcism movie that doesn’t try to be suspenseful or scary. The Vatican Tapes feels like a prequel of something big but it’s stretched too much that the waiting feels like forever. The film isn’t just predictable, it’s full of cliches and lame attempt for scares. It doesn’t even resort to jump scares to give the audience at least a heart-stopping movie experience.
You would at least expect a terrifying or maybe a haunting exorcism sequence but you won’t get even half of that. The film never gets exciting or intriguing, it doesn’t live up to any exorcism movies. It doesn’t even care to build something for its protagonist for the audience to have sympathy, it just goes on with its set pieces trying to bore you with cliches and serious drama sequences.
