The Offering
21 August 2016 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

The Offering is a Singapurean-North American co-production, something which seems appropriate, because its screenplay is built by borrowed (and quite trite) pieces from the cinematographic horror of both hemispheres. In other words: the digital ghosts and strident noises of North American cinema combined with the pale spirits and confusing structures of Asian cinema, exacerbated by horrible direction and bad performances. Besides, the screenplay doesn't make much sense. Let's see... we have Anna Waters' suicide. Her daughter Katie communicates with a supernatural presence employing Morse code. Her sister Jaime investigates other inexplicable suicides, connected to a satanic symbol. Two priests are obsessed with the lifting of the Babel Tower. There's also something about binary code, the "language of Internet"; a mysterious nanny with uncertain intentions; a cursed diving dress (I'm not kidding); and the obligatory use of technology as a conduit of supernatural forces. Where does all that lead? Good question. I would have liked to say that the multitude of sub-plots is conjugated into a logical and consistent story, but it's not like that. Even when we reach the "explanations" of the third act, they feel like last- minute improvisations. In conclusion: don't waste your time watching this piece of junk called The Offering (Caution! It's also known as "The Faith of Anna Waters"!). Better watch some of the movies copied by this disaster without any ambition or shame, such as The Exorcist, The Conjuring or Ju-On.
