What with the world stubbornly refusing to end this past weekend, there has been much discussion of faith vs. science, the spiritual vs. the secular. We here at Cinema Blend wouldn't presume to toss our two cents into such a weighty philosophical conversation, but we feel like we should contribute somehow. So, we're giving away a movie about demonic possession!

Yes, we're giving away a copy of the Blu-ray combo pack of The Rite, starring Anthony Hopkins and Colin O'Donoghue. The movie received harsh reviews when it bowed back in January, but our own Mack Rawden gave it three stars. At the very least, it's a chance to watch Hopkins chew the scenery as a priest losing his fight against the forces of evil.

Winning is easy. Just click on over to our Facebook page, "Like" it if you haven't already, and then leave a comment on this contest post. Tell us about your favorite "man vs. the devil" movie, and why, and we'll pick one as our winner. The contest ends at 12 am EST on Tuesday, May 31st. You can also check out the movie's website right here.

The winner will be notified via Facebook direct message and asked to provide their mailing addresses (no P.O. boxes please). Prize packs will be mailed directly to the winner. No purchase necessary. Failure to comply with the rules will result in disqualification and subsequent mockery. Good luck!

Inspired by true events, this supernatural thriller follows a seminary student (Colin O’Donoghue) sent to study exorcism at the Vatican in spite of his own doubts about the controversial practice and even his own faith. Only when sent to apprentice with legendary Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who has performed thousand of exorcisms, does his armor of skepticism begin to fall. Drawn into a troubling case that seems to transcend even Father Lucas’s skill, the young seminarian glimpses a phenomenon science can’t explain or control -- and an evil so violent and terrifying that it forces him to question everything he believes.
