Jane Morton, a psychiatrist from Dublin in deep mourning following the accidental death of her husband and son, is assigned to work on the case of Dorothy Mills, a teenaged girl in a small village who tried to strangle a baby. After miraculously surviving a car accident, Jane discovers a village darkened by strange events and meets a very nervous Dorothy, who swears she never touched the baby.

not a typical possession flick
6 March 2013 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

I came across this flick for a few times. Being told that it is a flick about possession but one not with the famous pea soup vomiting. It's not your typical flick about possession. It slowly moves toward possession. What do works is the community were things are taking place. It's more about the atmosphere, so it isn't made for teenagers. If you're not in the mood for a flick with a lot of talking and no action then this isn't your thing.

It's the job of Jane Van Dopp (Carice van Houten) a psychiatrist to find out what is wrong with Dorothy (Jenn Murray). Dorothy is accused of trying to kill a baby. Jane is sure that Dorothy has multiple personality disorder but the day Dorothy takes the voice of Jane's death son David it becomes clear that there is really something going on with Dorothy.

Creepy situations and the atmosphere makes this a little horror, not for everybody because no gore or red stuff is shown, well, just some red stuff when one shoots himself through the head. Still, towards the end it do has it moments.

Gore 0/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 2/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5
