    Exorcist: The Beginning

    ★½

    While the thought of a prequel sounds cool and somewhat useful from father Merrin's perspective, it should be done much better than this. Involvement of Finnish director Renny Harlin is an interesting choice. As director he's always been a hit & miss for me, this clearly is a miss.

Abduction part is done very well, even…
