The Vatican Tapes

Genre: Horror, Thriller; Starring: Olivia Taylor Dudley, Michael Pena, Dougray Scott; Director: Mark Neveldine; Release Date Wide: 07/24/2015; Runtime (in minutes): 91; MPAA Rating: PG-13

It’s been a few weeks since the last found-footage demonic-possession chiller, so it must be time for another. Wherever you are, Linda Blair, you have a lot to answer for. Olivia Taylor Dudley plays a young woman who becomes inhabited by Satan, forcing St. Peter’s to send a stone-faced emissary to rid her of her demons. With its whispering in ancient tongues, bendy double-jointed contortions, and holy water that stings, The Vatican Tapes is basically “Exorcism’s Greatest Hits” played by a schlocky cover band. C
