We gave it a C+

There may be need for an exorcist, but the power of Christ isn’t going to compel the Jewish demon wreaking havoc in this competent but shopworn horror film. Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick are fine as the parents of a girl (Natasha Calis) inhabited by an evil dibbuk released from an old wooden box, and Calis is appropriately creepy as that increasingly malevolent kid. Still, the scary bits are too familiar: It seems clichés are nondenominational. C+
