When New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Bana) investigates a series of inexplicable but somehow interconnected crimes, he crosses the path of an unorthodox priest. Together they combat the evil spreading amongst Iraq vets, revealing his own hidden guilt in the process. Adopting many elements from the real-life Sarchie’s actual cases, this film is a post-Iraq-war take on exorcism where horror genre meets action and crime drama – with few surprises.
