The story takes place with doing a docudrama about the home he purchased in Gary, Indiana. He convinces a couple of previous tenants to come back and discuss their accounts of the frightening ordeals that they endured during their stay at the home. A woman becomes possessed and begins speaking in tongues. Following the extreme amount of activity documented, production had to be halted, but the movie has been finished one year later and, boy, are you in for one edge of your seat demonic thrill ride.

It's a hoax
25 July 2018 | by amariesco-39264See all my reviews

I'm from Northwest Indiana, where this supposed demon possession took place, though I've never heard of the house. I have issues with the people and places in the film. One, Mr. Bagans, it's the Lake County Sheriff's Department, not the Lake County Police Department. Two, people from Gary, Indiana are not believable.

As Zak pointed out, it's a very poor, crime ridden city. People from here would do anything to make it into a movie, rather than go on with their normal existence.

I find it hard to believe that the Hammond police and the Lake County Sherrif's Department were ever involved in such a sensationalized case. Northwest Indiana is full of crime, and I can't see these departments helping out the Gary Police. No one wants to go into Gary, Indiana.

The unearthing under the stairs of typical everyday objects makes no sense. You would expect to see an alter or satanic remnants present, not women's underwear.

The priest is suspect. Something that he said didn't correlate what a person of the cloth would and should know. I also find it hard to believe he was given permission to perform an exorcism. The higher ups in the Catholic Church don't take exorcisms lightly, and it is very hard to obtain permission.

I've watched Ghost Hunters off and on, but it's becoming harder to buy anything Bagans does.

It's a hoax. All of it.
