Effective horror is making the ordinary terrifing, unfortunately 'Exorcist: The Beginning' does not approach this concept in even the remotest of ways. Nothing more than a small list of cliches borrowed from Hitchcock's 'The Birds' and 'The Amityville Horror' this latest reincarnation of 'The Exorcist' is neither scary nor spooky in the least. Hopefull, it is the beginning of the end and there will be no more attempts to muddy the legend of the classic book and film.

Horror, when effective, makes the ordinary seem terrifing not the terrifying ordinary. Unfortunately, 'Excorcist: The Beginning' is a case of the latter not the former. Every cliche is used in this movie adapted novel, from a flock of evil crows straight form Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' to the swarm of flies popularized in 'The Amityville Horror'. The original novel brought the horror to us, the reader, by setting the tale in a present day setting with ordinary people suddenly beset with the mundane gone eeriely awry. Not so with this new novel, and that is where it lacks presence. An exotic locale, Africa, set in the past, some years after the World War, only serves to distance the reader even further from feeling any sense of forboding. In the end, there are no blessings that can save this substandard attempt at horror.
