At least it's being somewhat original with its main concept, at first sight.
19 July 2012 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Thing that I can truly give this movie is that it at least isn't being like your average horror movie, in which a girl gets possessed by the devil. It does some new stuff and takes some good approaches to its subject. Well, in its first half at least. The second half of the movie unfortunately is far more clichéd and 'borrows' from several other well known genre movies. The more the movie progresses, the worser it gets.

The movie is only about 90 minutes short but it still feels way too long. It stretches things out, which cause the movie to get a bit tiresome after a while. OK, we get it! She is possessed, now get back to the story and tell us why and how it can be undone. It stalls for as long as possible and unfortunately there also isn't a good payoff to any of it.

It's all a real shame, since I actually was quite into the movie at first. I liked that it wasn't being like a typical modern horror-flick, involving teenagers. It seemed to take a far more clever and classy approach, despite its low-budget. Guess they forget about the script though, or perhaps they thought that half a good and originally written story would be enough to make a great genre movie out of.

It's weird how the movie successfully seems to avoid all of the genre clichés at first but then suddenly starts using every cliché out of the book and begins doing stuff that we have all seen before in different and far better genre movies. Yes, it doesn't look like it at first but in the end this movie is being nothing more than just another "The Exorcist" wannabe and knockoff.

The movie also becomes a totally unlikely one after a while, when its story starts doing some stupid things. Some of the events that happen in this movie are so unlikely and silly that they start taking away some of the suspension of disbelief. This especially goes for its very ending.

Still a good and original enough movie in some ways but in the end it's being nothing more than just another cheap and lazy "The Exorcist" ripoff.

5/10
