Just what possesses Iron Studio to make such a piece? Is it really a highly sought-after statue by horror fans out there? I wonder how well this will sell.

As a movie-based statue, the headsculpt has a surprisingly good likeness for such a small piece. I am not sure about the choice of pose. Doesn't seem very movie accurate to me.

This would work better as a larger diorama with the priests included holding the holy water instead of leaving it in the bed. They should do it authentically if they want to truly capture the spirit of the movie.

I agree it needs to be an ensemble piece. Without the priest, the scene has no resolution. I'm not necessarily a fan of this movie or the horror genre overall, but since this is based on a real-life rite, which drew many people to this movie in the first place, they should've thought out the execution better.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Am I even allowed to add some background commentary on what this movie was based on without getting yelled at? I intend to remain well within the forum rules in addressing the quoted post, regarding a very common reluctance that people have against watching this particular movie. To tread the bounds of "pop culture" while avoiding the any real-life things that it often calls back to, is unrealistic and uncharitable. Agree to disagree, and move on.
