    Yeah, it sounds like Derrickson has taken away all the right lessons about what did well, and not as well as he’d hoped, with Exorcism of Emily Rose.

    “If you’re doing it right, you’re not asking the audience to buy into
    your point of view at all. If you’re doing it right, you’re asking the
    audience to accept the character’s point of view as the character’s
    point of view. That can be anything. We’ve all watched hundreds of
    movies from characters’ points of view that are not our own. That’s part
    of the gift movies give us.

    So what I’m never trying to do is impart the way I understand the
    world, and especially my view of controversial religious issues. I’m
    never trying to propagate that or impart that on the audience.”


    I’m really looking forward to seeing this film, I think it’s gonna hit it past the bleachers 🙂
