Bland, But Inoffensive Studio Horror Movie
11 December 2018 | by ginnymasonSee all my reviews

If we're being honest, Screen Gems isn't known for churning out the world's best horror movies. Most of them feel undercooked to the point of tedium or, even worse, neutered to hell and back. The Possession of Hannah Grace falls somewhere in the middle. It's neither a total disaster nor a rare triumph for the studio a la The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

Hannah Grace keeps things nicely subtle for the first half hour of its run time with creaking doors, motion-sensored lights lights going on and off, and strange bumps in the night. It loses something when it starts turning into an Asian ghost story-inspired contortionist fest.

Shay Mitchell is a likable enough heroine even though her backstory seems shoehorned in and a bit awkward. The film is never truly scary, but it speeds along at a nice enough clip so that you don't feel like you're wasting too much of your time.

It could be better, but knowing Screen Gems, it could have been a lot worse. The R rating seems almost like an afterthought since none of the deaths in the film are what one would call gory besides a grisly opening sequence and, although, the titular character spends most of her screen time completely nude, she's usually bathed in shadows to keep from seeing any real nudity.
