Really Bad "Found Footage"
18 June 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Anneliese: The Exorcist Tapes (2011)

1/2 (out of 4)

The Asylum's attempt to cash in on countless "exorcism" films including THE LAST EXORCISM, which this is a mockbuster of. Not only that but the studio tries to claim that the true case of Anneliese Michel, a German girl who was believed to have been possessed by the devil, is featured in this "found footage" horror movie. In the film we see Anneliese (Nikki Muller) as she goes through various physical and psychological situations and the locals priests feels she's possessed while the doctors from the hospital thinks she's just mentally troubled. The footage will let the truth be known. ANNELIESE: THE EXORCIST TAPES is an extremely bad movie that lacks any real imagination and in the end its 90-minutes just go by so slowly that you'll wish you were the one possessed by the devil. I think a lot of the blame has to go towards the actual story, which simply gives us nothing new or interesting. We never really get to know any of the characters. We never care about any of the characters and there's not a single second where any of them don't come off more annoying than anything else. It also doesn't help that the director filmed everything so bland that there's just never anything that pulls you into the film. The lack of any real suspense or drama is just the death nail. Even worse is that there's not a single frame where you feel as if you're watching some sort of found footage as it's clear what we're seeing isn't real for one but it's clearly also not shot in 1976, which is the date it takes place. There are two things that kept me from giving this a BOMB rating and one is the performance as Muller. I thought she actually did a pretty good job in the part but it's just a shame her talents were in such a worthless movie. The second thing that "worked" is that the film thankfully got so bad to where I got a couple big laughs. One came from the horrendous German accents and the other came from a scene where the possessed girl tries to sexually assault one of the priests.
