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.
