An interesting exorcism film, with a few good moments.

From the very get go, it started off fairly well, and similar to the Exorcist and other possession films. With the introduction of the lead family, followed by a kid getting possessed, then show the hero in a bad ass scene as he helps a possessed guy.

Yeah, after that, it started going downhill for me. It wasn't really bad, per se, just very unrealistic. Mainly in terms of certain deaths, and how the cops were strangely absent, and no questions asked, etc. "So... not one of you know how this guy died? Despite there being five of you, and a kid locked in a room? OK, sound logic." In terms of acting, and cinematography, it was pretty good. Especially Aaron Eckhart as the gruff, wheelchair bound hero, Ember. He was likable as the character, and one of the reasons I even bothered to rate it a 7.

Story-wise, I actually did like it. It had a good premise, just.... some parts were poorly executed. Kinda like if the Exorcist was put in the hands of a director who had no idea what the script was about. I do wonder what the writers were thinking half way through the movie: "A toned down Exorcist with a hint of the Matrix? They'll totally buy that!" You have a character able to traverse minds... in which a demon controls the host. And yet, the 'mind' sequences didn't have any horror in them? Blasphemy! I would've so had a Night of the Demons dream sequence if I wrote it! But the movie is good as something intense to watch while bored, or while you wait for another movie to come on, or while you wait for some popcorn to, er, pop. More of a thriller than an actual horror movie though. But if you enjoy predictable twist endings, a life-hating hero and a bar fight scene, then check it out.

Different enough if still somewhat problematic

Attempting to locate a famed demon, an expert exorcist is called upon to determine the validity of a case involving a possessed young boy with ties to the demon he's hunting and begins a series of radical experiments to try to accomplish his mission before it kills him.

This one ended up being a decent if not entirely original effort. What this one does well is the fact that there's a rather interesting and intriguing concept at the core of the film's premise. Rather than go for the straightforward idea of exorcism and rely on the traditional forms of chanting, prayer and such, this opts for a much more intriguing idea where the individual can go from the outside world into a person's dreams where they can fight the demonic possession in that manner which gives this a wholly interesting avenue to go down in regards to dealing with the affliction. That, in turn, leads to this one featuring some rather enjoyable elements here within these scenes that feature is attempts at saving them, from the opening in the nightclub surrounded by demons to the failed exorcism attempts at the beginning of their sessions to the rather fun final attempt at the carnival where it all comes together in a fun, exciting manner with all sorts of fun tricks are utilized to offer up the kind of strong finish here with the numerous false finishes leading up to the big fight at the end which has a lot to like. Alongside the film's rather fun and frantic pacing here, this one really manages to get enough to like here to hold this one up over it's few minor flaws. The main issue with this one is the fact that there's just not a whole lot of actual action going on in the film. By taking away the concept of the possession that usually transpires in here, this one gives a series of scenes where all that happens is him going around talking to others in a dream world which constitutes the majority of the actual exorcism scenes here. This doesn't generate any kind of sustained sense of fear throughout here due to the lack of actual threat posed for these moments and it really makes the film feel devoid of any actual supernatural content for a large portion of the time. Likewise, the film also struggles to really get a handle on when the kid is actually possessed, as there's nothing here to readily give away what happened or how it occurred as he simply ends up in the manner after the beginning when he kills the intruder leaving this one with no clue as to how he ended up in that manner. As well as some rather spotty CGI to denote the demons' presence around them, these here are all that really hold this one down.

Rated PG-13: Violence, Language and children-in-jeopardy.

A far more intelligent film than it appears to be.

I'll simply say this about Incarnate, if you're looking for a film that is in the vein of Insidious or some other horror film that relies on the viewer actually paying attention to the story over the typical guts and gore, then you're in luck. However, if you're looking to just kill an hour and a half with something mindless, look elsewhere. This movie, while by no means perfect, is also highly underrated and at least tries to put its' own twist on the whole possession sub-genre. Don't let the negative rating or reviews put you off, this is one film that you'll regret not viewing several years later. In this viewer's opinion, this is a future cult classic.
