Final Prayer is yet another found footage film that might have a couple scares but it’s no different than any of the others that permeate the market every year. The acting is so-so and the camera work is jolting, probably to mask the film’s limited budget. I suppose if you enjoy the sub-genre or even collect them, this might be worth a watch, otherwise skip and wait until it airs on SyFy.

THE MOVIE

When a church in a remote area reports strange happenings, a team of Vatican investigators sets out for the British West Country to demystify the unusual sounds and events. However, what they come to discover proves to be more disturbing than anything they could have ever imagined.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.5/5

The features are a bit light however there is an extensive Behind the Scenes (40:10) featurette, the Trailer (2:05) and inside the case is a redemption code for the Digital UltraViolet copy.

VIDEO – 5.0/5

Nightcrawler sleazes onto Blu-ray presented with a 2.40 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. Detail levels are sharp and colors are, as expected, a bit more muted even for the well-lit scenes and while there is some graininess for the darker shots, it’s nothing overabundant or distracting.

AUDIO – 4.5/5

The 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track is more than adequate for this movie. The dialogue sounds crisp and clear throughout but the track does kick into a second gear, no pun intended, for the more action-oriented scenes particularly the chase sequence where we hear the gear shifts in Louis’s Dodge Challenger car. The lossless track also has good depth making use of the rear channels for ambient noises and James Newton Howard’s haunting score.

OVERALL – 2.5/5

Overall, Final Prayer is yet another found footage film that might have a couple scares but it’s no different than any of the others that permeate the market every year. The acting is so-so and the camera work is jolting, probably to mask the film’s limited budget. I suppose if you enjoy the sub-genre or even collect them, this might be worth a watch, otherwise skip and wait until it airs on SyFy.
