Globe and Mail:
[Hackford] seems stuck in a private limbo, unable to decide whether he's making a special-effects flick or a pop-philosophical tract.
A highly enjoyable motion picture that's part character study, part supernatural thriller, and part morality play.
The movie never fully engaged me; my mind raced ahead of the plot, and the John Grisham stuff clashed with the Exorcist stuff.
The picture starts off slick and amusing, gets convoluted, draggy and strange round about the midway point, and ends up just plain ludicrous.
Regrettably, an overblown finale and redundant trick ending undercut the mild subversiveness of what's gone before.
