In 1974, Oxford professor Joseph Coupland invites introspective lad Brian McNeil to film his experimental treatment of subject Jane Harper, aided by student assistants Krissi Dalton and Harry Abrams. Jane, a young woman with no memory of the past and repeatedly abandoned by foster families, believes herself possessed by a doll named Evey that gives her telekinetic power. Keeping her awake in an isolated house, Prof. Coupland intends that she puts her evil energy into an actual doll, thereafter destroying it to heal Jane. Amidst strange things happening in the house, Brian feels sorry for Jane and, researching her tattoo, learns an evil secret about Jane's past, and of Prof. Coupland's motivation.Written by

When they put the candle under Jane's arm, the 'flame' can be seen to clearly be one of the plastic 'flameless' battery operated candles - the flame is a stiff piece of paper that doesn't bend. See more »
I like my horror movies, to be more precise i like my supernatural horror movies. This unfortunately wasn't one of them. I had such high hopes for this movie, Good cast, trailer looked good, what could go wrong. Well, everything was there, except for a scare. I realised about a third into the movie i had a feeling, didn't know what it was, then it dawned on me, nothing had happened!, absolutely nothing. I continued to watch, with hopes of something happening and that is where the movie gets you, It lulls you into thinking the big reveal is just about to happen, and yet another small reveal happens along with a new bit of info to the mix. But sadly is like a cheap dinner, Smells and looks good, but leaves you wanting. Acting, i have to say, was meh!, the blonde! please! stereotype was almost tattooed on her forehead, along with the nutty professor and religiously shy hero.
Sorry folks, this is not what it is tarted up to be!, it's a meh! rainy waste of a Sunday afternoon.
Disappointing, disjointed, disinterested.
