What starts as a poignant medical documentary about Deborah Logan's descent into Alzheimer's disease and her daughter's struggles as caregiver degenerates into a maddening portrayal of dementia at its most frightening, as hair-raising events begin to plague the family and crew and an unspeakable malevolence threatens to tear the very fabric of sanity from them all.

The story of Alzheimers is never about one person. My PhD thesis film posits that this insidious disease not only destroys the patient but has a physiological on the primary caregiver.

Great horror flick about a real, sad, scary disease
One of the best horror movies from the last few years. The "horror" genre tag was missing from the IMDb page when I first looked it up (right before I saw it) so I really didn't know what I was getting into
although it was pretty obvious that it would be a horror flick due to
the cover picture, but you never know.
The story was well written. It was very clever how they incorporated Alzheimer's disease into the story - well, they didn't "incorporate" it
the disease is the main story, but it was very clever how they made
it into a horror movie - the disease is very scary in and of itself.
I have to admit that the acting was a bit iffy, but it became negligible toward the middle of the movie due to the intensity of the story. And Jill Larson gave a stellar performance.
