The Pope's Exorcist | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Chris Vognar Rolling Stone The Pope’s Exorcist will certainly never go down as a classic of the genre, but it’s better than it has any reason to be. Sometimes, the devil you know gets the job done just fine. Apr 17, 2023 Full Review The Pope's Exorcist | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Oliver Jones Observer An absurdly plotted, blood-drenched haunted house movie...with all the vitality and vivaciousness of a 15th-century corpse. Rated: 1/4 Apr 17, 2023 Full Review The Pope's Exorcist | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Stephen Romei The Australian It is a powerful historical drama and Crowe is outstanding as a real life Vatican exorcist-in-chief. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 15, 2023 Full Review The Pope's Exorcist | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Avaryl Halley Movie Bitches One of the wildest movies i’ve seen in a while…also complete shlock…and also camp! Apr 24, 2024 Full Review The Pope's Exorcist | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Andrew Galdi Movie Bitches Its was a wild wacky time Apr 24, 2024 Full Review The Pope's Exorcist | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …it seems unfair to penalise Crowe and Nero for their work here, since their performances are the only things that make this rehashed supernatural gumbo watchable… Rated: 2/5 Mar 6, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
