What starts as a poignant medical documentary about Deborah Logan's descent into Alzheimer's disease and her daughter's struggles as caregiver degenerates into a maddening portrayal of dementia at its most frightening, as hair-raising events begin to plague the family and crew and an unspeakable malevolence threatens to tear the very fabric of sanity from them all.Written by
The film states that Alzheimer's Disease can be diagnosed almost surely by brain scan, and also the progression of the disease by brain scans. Alzheimer's Disease can only be diagnosed for sure by autopsy after death. See more »
I do all my little puzzles. I do crosswords. I'm lifting weights. I am doing everything that I have read will help to stave off the progression of this disease. Stave it off! There's no cure. And so when I am in the middle of something and suddenly my mind just leaves the premises, there are no words to describe how distressing it is.

I like the way the movie started. I liked the premise and the "horror" movie take on something as real as someone slowly suffering from Alzheimer's.
But they lost me once all the supernatural stuff started.
And I could have tolerated the supernatural stuff if that's the way they wanted to go with this, but I couldn't because of that stupid shaky cam and that girl doing the documentary (I forgot her name, May?) screaming all the time.
Sucks because I started watching this with very high expectations (since I heard it was a pretty good movie) but it didn't deliver. And that sucks, because based on the first 20-30 minutes, it had potential.
