One day, Clyde stops his car in a yard sale and Em buys an antique carved box and becomes obsessed with it. Em finds the hidden lock and releases an evil spirit that possesses her.

Yet another run of the mill exorcism film, was very slow starting, very slow to get into, just a tad boring in all.
I guess if your new to the genre you will probably enjoy this film. the effects were done well, there were scary moments although they resorted to going from quiet to making loud noises so you would get a quick jump.
Wish they would have just tried to spend more time building up a scary atmosphere.
There are much better films out there, i would personally recommend drag me to hell its far less boring.
Overall, this film was nicely done and put together its main weakness was it was just waay too slow. If it were released ten or twenty years ago this film would have been more of a hit but in todays market, its been done already.
A lot of people came out of the screen disappointed.
