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 ...

Not a complete disaster.
26 August 2013 | by TehmehSee all my reviews

I have to admit that the subtitles on my blu-ray sucked so much that it took me away from the movie many times and may have an effect on my feelings about the experience overall (scandinavian people, beware of shitty subtitles and if you feel you need to buy this, get it abroad with English subtitles).

On to the movie though. There are some good little ideas here. Yes, it is a possession movie and many things you'd expect are implemented in this film as well, and while there isn't anything revolutionary in here, there are still little things and nuances that at least try to complement the story.

That said, even though there is some effort, this movie doesn't quite nail it. There are good ideas and good settings for some scenes but they aren't used to their full potential. I wouldn't want to say it's half-assed, because the effort is there but they didn't go all the way. There was potential to make this a good movie, now I felt like the experience was average and lacking. The scary parts should've been a little more shocking, the family drama a little more dramatic, the narrative a little more deep, the structure a little more coherent. Too many things were toned down and it didn't have real impact on me.

Anyway, I didn't outright hate it. Acting was decent most of the time, and I liked the family-centric approach (which isn't anything new, but always feels the right way to go). This movie managed to stay somewhat intact. Definitely isn't one of my favorite exorcism films, but I didn't feel like I had absolutely wasted a part of my life watching this.
