Critic Reviews of "Dominion: Prequel To The Exorcist"VarietyMay 26, 2005
Schrader's intelligent, quietly subversive pic emphasizes spiritual agony over horror ecstasy, while paying occasional lip-service to the need for scares.Ebert & RoeperMay 24, 2005
The frights, the scares, they just weren't there.SlateMay 20, 2005
It's a good, thoughtful horror picture -- and thiiis close to being a very good one.Houston ChronicleMay 20, 2005
Exorcism aside, Dominion is well-acted, handsomely photographed and hauntingly scored.Hollywood ReporterMay 20, 2005
The Schrader variation is awfully dull, with scant evidence of the sort of things that make horror movies attractive -- like mounting suspense and spine-tingling creepiness and, oh yeah, the element of horror.Newark Star-LedgerMay 20, 2005
To be fair, Schrader's version fails in ways that Harlin's dumbed-down version didn't.Antagony & EcstasyJune 07, 2011
I can't call it a success, but it is certainly an outstanding failure, an attempt to broaden the horizons of a stale genre with real discussion of the matters that consume its maker.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
It's true "Dominion" is a better prequel than "The Beginning", but in the end, that's not really saying much in either case.Combustible CelluloidMay 29, 2007
I like both versions of Exorcist IV about the same... It's too bad that a clever editor couldn't have taken the best bits from both films and put them together into a co-directed, successful whole.Film Journal InternationalMarch 01, 2007
Neither a masterpiece nor a failure, it will probably appeal mostly to those with knowledge of its death and miraculous resurrection.Christianity TodaySeptember 22, 2006
After 32 years, two sequels, and two prequels, The Exorcist remains an impossible act to follow.Film ThreatOctober 26, 2005
"Dominion" isn't outright horror, and a welcome relief from the days where shots are shorter than the hairs on our heads.
