In a high-rise apartment young parents Alex and Mahsa live with their seven-year-old daughter Mina. Everything about the family is completely normal, uncomfortably real: Their home, their jobs, her school, the way they hold and love each other. The line between fact and fiction is blurred because THEY ARE A REAL family. Until completely normal turns into what they fear the most. Alex's injury opens the door to a malevolent force that attacks and dismantles the family one person at a time: A violent aggressor determined to prove that possession is real, unconscionably disturbing and very different from how it's depicted in the movies.

Another horror repeat
30 July 2016 | by rosecaliforniaSee all my reviews

This film is the same as many other horror movies. It really does try to build a story, to give reality to the characters, but it doesn't succeed. It has the feeling of someone making this with borrowed equipment after having written a script within a very short amount of time...While taking lots of liberties from other recent films.

The acting is bad and not believable in the least. All the scenes jump around with no connection other than a desperate attempt to show daily life. But it only seems disjointed and haphazardly done.

This film is painful and slow, best left un watched. Considering the amount of awards on the front cover from unknown events or festivals, that should have been a clue.
