The majority of the story takes place in New Orleans on a single day, as a cynical Costello educates Garcia on the realities of the demon-purging market. They travel from satanic hotspot to satanic hotspot, with the veteran teaching the novice things he never learned in seminary. Throughout, the partners dig into the case of a boy who murdered his relatives, hoping to find evidence that the boy was possessed. The danger grows as they get closer to the facts, before Lange throws in a major twist in the third act. IMDB
However, one major criticism of “The Dark” was that it was slow-paced, even to the point of being tedious, and this is an even bigger issue in “The Seventh Day.” Lange’s latest film is more plot-driven and gimmicky than his previous work, but it still moves at a slow pace with little sense of urgency. A film like this needs to be more confrontational. Instead, it seldom exceeds a mutter in volume. During the COVID-19 pandemic, The New York Times is dedicated to evaluating new theatrical releases.
