    Better than the other prequel, but very, very dull. Could the exorcism have been any more anti-climatic?

    Better than Harlin's take on the material, but still useless as a theological horror film.

  1. The film will come to share the video store shelf with Harlin's infinitely stupider rendition soon enough, but it's a shame they couldn't have been released theatrically head-to-head -- a death match-cum-clinical trial that might've supplied some objective stats on how much condescension the American moviegoer actually enjoys.

    Result is hardly a diabolical failure, if not quite a heavenly masterpiece. Schrader's intelligent, quietly subversive pic emphasizes spiritual agony over horror ecstasy, while paying occasional lip-service to the need for scares.

    The strengths of Dominion, however, have been little diminished by its long shelf life and, in fact, may have grown stronger with age.
