A rookie priest arrives for his first day of training with a renowned exorcist. As they plunge deeper into hell on Earth, the lines between good and evil blur and their own demons emerge.
The Seventh Day is a bit of a mixed bag overall in its execution. However, it has a lot of good things going for it. Including a stellar Guy Pearce and Stephen Lang who has become a fan favorite as of late. The misfires of The Seventh Day is that most of the times it has a very much been there done that feel.
Which is rightfully so as you can tell the influences of the catholic mythology dealing with exorcist and modern exorcist. I personally wish it was a little bit more off the wall. With the take on exorcism that seems watered down.
Justin does a solid job with his directing ability here, even though the script weights it down just a tad too much. If you’re in the mood for new horror at home or the big screen. The Seventh Day is definitely worth while. I just don’t think it’s worth revisiting.
Overall grade: 3/5 stars
