With Anthony Hopkins, Colin O'Donoghue, Ciarán Hinds, Alice Braga, Toby Jones, Marta Gastini, Rutger Hauer
Written by Michael Petroni (suggested by the Matt Baglio book)
When it comes to possession movies, it is almost impossible for those who have seen the landmark movie The Exorcist, not to have that in the back of their minds. In that case, virtually all pale in comparison, so it's best to try and avoid its reference.
Extra features include an alternate ending, deleted scenes, and the Soldier Of God featurette, which looks at father Gary Thomas, the man whose life inspired The Rite (also taking the viewer into the real Exorcism Academy).
