A review from a 42 year old sci-fi fanatic

I seem to be forced to write a review every now and then to counter the teens and 20 somethings that think they need to review every freaking thing in front of their heads. As an adult I can say comparatively speaking in regards to Exorcism, Possession, Evil doings and all things of the nether world this flick is worth the ticket. Aaron plays his role out fantastically (enough that I teared up at times) and until the end of the movie you will see the moments that hearken back to the decades previous releases but this one certainly offers a unique twist on the understanding of good vs. evil. I found myself nodding early on as a former Catholic and someone who just read way too much to keep believing in Santa Clause or religious super heroes I will say that I have plenty of room in my mind for universe yet untold that retains the secrets of untold, infinite galaxies (Hubble has scratched the surface and soon a new version of Hubble will be hurtling around the Earth). The cast is just fine and spot on with the sincerity in which they convey their emotional portrayals. I know full well there have been other releases over the last 7 years that fulfill most of the requirements of this genre but Incarnate has heart and an emotional connection I thought was somewhat left out or diminished in the other movies of this similar nature. As we hear Aaron's arch nemesis character say in the movie "There are some things far worse than death"

Much better than it had any business of being. Wholly recommended.

As a die-hard horror fan, a fan of Demonic Possession films, and a fan of great acting, I immediately wrote off this movie as being another Hollywood cash grab. Blumhouse is the worst thing to happen to horror since Rob Zombie started making movies, so seeing as this is another bullet to add to their arsenal in murdering the horror genre, I was weary about watching it. Couple that with the film not having any marketing up until a few weeks before it was released, and all of the signs pointed to a very half-a$$ed film to join the ranks of all of the other failed horror films of the last 10 years. After watching it, however, I am very glad to have been proved wrong. Incarnate ended up being original, entertaining, and the acting was really top notch, especially that of the three leads. ..

Serviceable, and not as bad as the critics are saying.

I'm a fan of Aaron Eckhart so that was my main draw to see Incarnate. The good: The film doesn't insult you by explaining everything at once, it does this through the action and dialogue sequences which are OKAY. Aaron delivers a solid performance here, and so does David Mazouz, the kid that plays Bruce Wayne in the Gotham TV series. The story is moderately interesting and reminds me a bit of Inception. The Meh/Bad: The directing is often a bit ham-fisted and clunky. The script wasn't particularly brilliant but was OKAY. Didn't care much for the cop-out ending although that's a minor complaint. Bottom line is, don't expect a masterpiece or above average film. Its a nice film to kill an hour and a half with.

Entertaining but Flawed Storyline

I'm not going to try to dazzle everybody with my huge vocabulary or my expansive expertise on films, but I do know what I like, and I liked this movie. It takes an unorthodox approach to exorcism, not by treating it with priests, crucifixes, and holy water, but by treating the demon as a parasite that attaches itself to its host. Once the demon (parasite) attaches itself to the host, it invades their mind and creates an elaborate illusion (or dream state) based on what the host desires most. In turn, that keeps the host compliant while the demon consumes the soul. ..

Truly terrible, mindless, lazy and dumb

Fresh surprise to the "exorcist" type ficks

In New York, the boy Cameron (David Mazouz) lives with his Dutch mother Lindsey (Carice van Houten) that is divorced from his alcoholic father Dan (Matt Nable). One night, Cameron overhears a noise in the kitchen and is attacked by a homeless; however he kills the man, breaking his neck. The Vatican representative Camilla (Catalina Sandino Moreno) summons the scientist Dr. Ember (Aaron Eckhart) to help the boy that is possessed and the exorcism is not effective. Dr. Ember has the ability to enter in the mind of people possessed by demons and bring them back to reality in a dangerous procedure with the support of his team composed by Oliver (Keir O'Donnell) and Riley (Emily Jackson). When Dr. Ember visits Cameron, he realizes that the boy is possessed by the insidious demon Maggie, who killed his wife and son in a car accident. Will Dr. Ember succeed in destroying Maggie and saving Cameron? "Incarnate" is an entertaining film with a flawed storyline with a combination of "The Matrix" and "The Exorcist". The return of the possessed person from the dream to the real world does not use a red pill but a treasured object that brings recollection to the owner. There are at least two casualties (the homeless and Dan) in Lindsey 's apartment with no investigation from the police. Why the demon at the priest's house need to cut his neck? The screenplay should have been more careful in details. The conclusion is open to interpretation maybe with the author using a hook for a sequel. My vote is six. Title (Brazil): Not Available

Not bad at all.

I watched this because Aaron Eckhart stars and it's hard to believe that he would choose a script that is truly terrible... unless someone either has something embarrassing on the man. And that must be the case. While Eckhart tries his best to be the wheelchair bound man who tries to get into people's minds to "evict" demons, this dud cannot be redeemed from its own demons. So what is so terrible about this film? It's as if the writers just came up with a concept and were too lazy to think about whether it made sense. And the director just allows an amorphous concept - something about demons possessing a body by convincing the mind of the victim that it was getting what it desires in a dream state - it is all lightly explained gobbledygook. The awkwardness in the script plays out among the actors and it feels like a poor man's B-movie. As others have said, it's something akin to Constantine meets Inception and the Exorcist, borrowing concepts and not doing a very convincing job of getting the audience to buy into the mumbo jumbo jargon that they hope you won't too think too deeply about. Here's the entire movie in a nutshell, clichés excluded. Man whose family was killed by a person who was possessed by a demon agrees to exorcise a boy who is possessed by a demon that he believes is the same. There are no real twists in this movie and even every semi- twist in the ending can be guessed by the audience by a writer who thought he was really clever. We've seen this all before a million times and much better. Poor Aaron. This one is a real career killer.

Boyd Bryan ( 2017-05-01 )

The first misstep in Eckart's career in a long time. A movie that just didn't know what it wanted to be and it showed.

My quick rating - 5,9/10. Very nicely told story of a man who can enter into the dreams of the possessed and basically "exorcise" them in a religious way. So he removes the demons from those that are tormented by making them understand in the dream state that the demon isn't real and forces them to let go f their grasp of the host. In this case a particularly nasty evil has taken hold of a young boy and he must again confront the same demonic spirit that killed his wife. My description so far has been pretty poor, I just reread it, but I try to stick with first train of thought. Really a quite good flick that doesn't rely on gore to tell he story. The jump scares are sprinkled in to keep the audience paying attention (and often very unexpected) along with even a twist thrown in just when you have it all figured out. Even with the movies flaws, this is a recommended viewing that will really make you think how much better this could've been if it just got a little more attention. As it stands, it is better than most of the cookie cutter "exorcist" movies that have been littering the STV shelves lately. Check it out.

The movie takes some getting use to as it's a little off on genres. Not a typical ghost story, Aaron Eckhart plays a doctor Who takes a very non religious method in exercising demons by using a gift he has to enter the minds of those "infected" by supernatural parasites and evicting as he calls it, the spirit by making its host realize that the perfect world the demon has created in its dreams is not real. I was kinda expecting more of a horror movie theme but it's not that. that's what is a little off. It's not scary and it's not trying to scare you (At least I think, cause if it is it does do a bad job of it). It feels more like it's exploring or expanding the concept of a religious-less exercisium with a little background story to keep it interesting and keep it moving.
