Storyline

Michael King (Shane Johnson), who doesn't believe in God or the Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, Michael decides to make his next film about the search for the existence of the supernatural, making himself the center of the experiment - allowing demonologists, necromancers, and various practitioners of the occult to try the deepest and darkest spells and rituals they can find on him - in the hopes that when they fail, he'll once and for all have proof that religion, spiritualism, and the paranormal are nothing more than myth. But something does happen. An evil and horrifying force has taken over Michael King. And it will not let him go. Written by Anonymous

Still an awesome movie after the second time!
6 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Hey all. I had to log in to my IMDb account after watching this movie for the second time.

I'm very surprised that this movie has such a low rating. I'm a sucker for these types of movies, I will admit that, but with so many crappy movies coming out these days, this one really stands out.

I won't ruin anything. All I have to say is that if you like the found footage / demonic possession type movies, you will most likely think this is the best one you've seen so far.

It has an engaging storyline, truly frightening suspenseful moments, decent jump scares, and an ending that makes sense and doesn't make you angry (like some of the other movies in this genre).

Overall it just has a genuinely creepy vibe to it, and thats the type of movie that resonates with me. It feels REAL at times.

Kudos
