Storyline

Fifteen year-old Emma Evans has an argument with her mother Lucy since she wants to go to a concert in London with her friends Rose and Alex. Emma immediately has a convulsion and her family takes her to the hospital, but the doctors do not find any physical problem. Then her father John tries to convince his wife to send Emma to school, instead of homeschooling, but she prefers to keep Emma in the family-based education. Lucy sends her daughter to the psychoanalyst believing that she has psychological problems and Emma asks her friend Rose to record her session of hypnosis though the cellular but the doctor dies during the session. When Emma listens to the tape, she believes she is possessed by the devil and asks her parents to be submitted to an exorcism with her uncle, Priest Christopher Taylor. However her skeptical mother is against the ritual and recalls that Chris was responsible for the death of a teenager, Ana, in the past in an unsuccessful exorcism. But when Emma levitates ...

User Reviews

 
Pretty average...few good scenes but that's it
26 October 2011 | by Chaosmetal69See all my reviews

This film is about a girl who gets possessed by an evil spirit and weird things start happening: the usual exorcism story line formula.

The presentation of this setting for an exorcism movie though was extremely flawed at some parts though and the first half hour of the movie honestly bored me and felt cheesy at times

The next half an hour of the movie was the best part of it though, good raw exorcism takes and good demon possession acting made me anticipate more.

However the next half an hour the story took a bit of a twist and left me feeling kinda dry and disappointed.

Put it this way, if you like exorcism movies check it out...but don't think you'll be watching an amazing new horror movie cause this is not it. If the movie stuck to the pure original exorcism style movie without trying to be different it probably would have been much better.
