Trivia

Director Diederik Van Rooijen caught the attention of Hollywood with his low-budget thriller Taped (2012). He moved from the Netherlands to the USA with his family in 2014 to direct a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds (1963). However, the studio couldn't decide between a classical remake or a modern take on the material, so the project got stuck in development hell. In the meanwhile, van Rooijen got involved with The Possession of Hannah Grace, and decided to make it his American debut. See more »

Unoriginal but not Bad
21 February 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

After spending a period in rehab, the former police officer Megan Reed (Shay Mitchell) accepts the job offered by her friend Lisa Roberts (Stana Katic) to work in the graveyard shift in a hospital morgue. Megan is recovering from a stress caused by a situation where her partner died. Megan receives the corpse of a young woman named Hannah Grace (Kirby Johnson) and later a man tries to burn the body in the incinerator but Megan and the security team hold and arrest the man. Soon Megan has the weird sensation that Hannah Grace is recovering from her injuries but her friend Lisa believes she is still using drugs and does not believe in her. But soon she realizes that there is something evil in the cadaver.

"The Possession of Hannah Grace" is an unoriginal but not bad horror film. The screenplay could have been better not showing the exorcism of Hannah Grace in the beginning, but maybe in flashback to keep the mystery. But the performances are great and the creepy atmosphere keeps the tension. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Cadáver" ("Cadaver")
