    Exorcist II: The Heretic

    ★★★

    Would it surprise you to know I actually saw this film before I saw the original. Just like Halloween II, this is one of those films that I was able to sneak up late to watch.

Maybe marketing for this film was off, maybe people just had such high expectations with writer Oren Peli being attached to it. I am not entirely sure but this got a lot of bad press. Bad press that to me isn't entire justified.

    The basic premise of Chernobyl Diaries is a group of tourists taking an "extreme tour" of the ghost city of Pripyat Ukraine abandoned after…
