American seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O'Donaghue) travels to Italy to take an exorcism course.
The film is based off a book, which centres around real-life priest Father Gary Thomas from California. He was tasked by his bishop to become the diocesan exorcist and so was sent to Rome to learn how to do it.
Don't be afraid.
Man#2: Do you believe in sin?
Woman: There's nothing to believe.
The Kovak & Son Funeral Home is supposed to be set in Dixon, Illinois, as seen in the letter from Italy, that Michael Kovak (Colin O'Donaghue) gets at the end of the movie. However, the area code for the phone number on the funeral home sign is "312", which is an area code for Chicago (over one hundred miles away from Dixon).
What follows is inspired by true events. The opening credits evaporate. The T in Rite is shaped like a Christian cross. The t's in the end credits are the same.
