Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Confined to a wheelchair after a horrific accident, Dr. Seth Ember (Aaron Eckhart) is an “Incarnate”—gifted with the rare ability to delve into the minds of possessed people in order to exorcise their demons from the inside out. When the Vatican enlists him to exorcise a particularly troubled young boy, Ember is shocked to discover inside him the same evil spirit responsible for the death of his wife and child years before. The boy is in the grips of a demon with powers never seen before. Now, with the young boy’s life in his hands and his own personal redemption at stake, Ember desperately searches for a way to destroy the demon before it kills him and unleashes its terror upon the world… while facing the horrors of his past.”

…surprisingly proficient Blumhouse potboiler… this briskly paced potboiler is better than it has any right to be… offers a relatively fresh take on standard-issue exorcism-melodrama tropes…
Joe Leydon, Variety
…takes a little too long to get to its chills… The film doesn’t really get up to speed until its final 10 minutes, which are genuinely pulse-pounding and even moving. …
Noel Murray, The Los Angeles Times
…“Incarnate” has half a decent concept, but doesn't do much with it…
Luke Y. Thompson, Forbes
…dunderheaded demonic possession saga… [½/4]
Peter Sobczynski,
…incompetent. Incorrigible… dumb, dull, derivative and deeply undeserving…
