So yes, exorcism movies are very old hat by now. Although, normally they’re missing an ingredient that The Exorcist in the 21st Century does have: it reflects the pure truth. This documentary goes into the domains of the Catholic Church hand in hand with one of the few exorcists left in Europe, José Antonio Fortea, who travels the world always on the lookout for demonic possessions. This leads him to Constanza, a Columbian woman who claims she’s been living with demons for fifteen years. The Exorcist in the 21st Century handles one of star subjects in terror in one of the most realistic approaches we’ve ever seen.
