a very entertaining story of possession,which does not follow the usual formula
5 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

i really enjoyed this's a movie about a man who,becomes possessed by an evil the beginning we are told it is based on factual events,which is possible,but there's no way to verify that claim.for a made for TV,this 1 is quite well done.i think a big part of the reason for this is that the movie focuses more on the acting than than on big budget,bombastic special effects.the effects are low key,but well done.the movie also dwells on the psychological aspects of someone being posses and how they deal with it.the acting is very convincing,more so than in many movies of the genre,made for TV or not.i also like that you don't know the reason for the possession,and when the reason is revealed,it's somewhat surprising(at least for me,it was)the movie doesn't take the usual rouete travelled by most in the genre,which is refreshing.all in all,a very entertaining suspenseful,well acted vote:a strong 8/10
