Trivia

During the swimming pool scenes I was the medical resource on set and it was in the blustry low 30's with plenty of wind and cold rain. It was totally amazing how the cast and crew stayed focused and on target even when there was a pool heater blow out. There was no solace from the cold as the doors on the mansion were wide open as well. Craft Services still managed to put out warm food despite the conditions. Dr. Rhiannon A.

Aptly Named
8 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This movie presents an insightful, thought-provoking, and deeply disturbing twist on the common exorcist theme. It's not that the question of the nature of evil is so rare, but that, when considered in the context of the storyline, the answer proves as elusive, as it does in life. Yet, in life, when confronted with such demands, after a time, we generally blow a circuit and change our focus to something else. It is as if mere humans just aren't designed to manage the failures in our design - but, one asks, why not? Why can't we, individually, or as a group, prevent the horrors which abound in our society? The movie gives us the opportunity to simply acknowledge our powerlessness and bewilderment, which are embodied variously by different characters, throughout the storyline. Contrary to the gist of several reviews, the seemingly low key nature of the horror, here, is no failure, but, rather, design. The notion of the invincibility of evil, when one takes a moment to savor the feelings brought up by the absence of triumph in the film, sinks down deep into our constant fears, sorrow, and coping mechanisms, laying bare the inner landscape, for the moment portrayed as a battlefield bloodied by failure, impotence, and defeat. If that seems overdone, pause to consider the lives of just those neighbors you know within a half block, the walking wounded you see everywhere you go, the daily horrors of abuse and neglect sickening so many around us and causing maladaptive reactions which only make things worse.

For a few minutes after the movie, we ponder the subtleties. If, as implied by the film, evil is not something outside ourselves, but some horror arising within, how can it be combatted, prevented, or accepted? In real life, of course, the situation would have been handled differently; but the film's focus on evil, itself, only benefits from the contrivance, as if to point out that dealing with the symptoms allopathically is all good and fine, when it works; but how can we direclty address a disease so deeply embedded in the human experience?

The acting was great. In fact, the actor with the most objectionable character does such a believable job that it was hard to watch. To avoid mentally slapping him, I had to switch to appreciating his craft.
