Intriguing if somewhat problematic effort
11 December 2017 | by GL84See all my reviews

Attempting to uncover a story, a reporter seeks out a survivor of a strange case due to the similarity to a case she's involved with and has her tell of what happened in the past where she was subject to a frightening ordeal following the adoption of a young girl and how she escapes.

This here turned out to be quite the decent offering. One of the better aspects on display is the manner in which this one utilizes the familiar setup to tell a rather different story. Rather than go for the traditional methods featured in such an effort, this one features a slightly different take in the psychological storyline that gets fleshed out nicely through flashbacks. Whether it's her hallucinations of seeing the mumbling figure walking through the house to being tormented by the disembodied voice while being home alone forcing her to wander through the house searching for the source of it all and the later discovery of the bloodied footprints found in the house which is a rather dark and chilling sequence. The additional input gathered here from the adoption angle gives this one a rather fun series of scenes here with the girl obviously causing some freaky moments here which helps to enhance the tension caused by the different events occurring around her which causes plenty of fun. From the scene of her forcing the guest to chop food endlessly while she floats around the kitchen to the hallucination of the dead child after taunting her with information no one else could've known and the odd behavior she demonstrates afterward, this one generates quite a compelling and creepy setup that all combine together into detailing the actual possession. That these come from a far different cultural perspective gives this a strong flavor that gets nicely exploited in the finale where it switches things around in a fine twist that allows for the different cultures to get plenty of play here and generate some finely chilling moments. These here manage to hold this one up while it does have a few minor problems with it. The biggest issue is the rather dispiriting pacing which is rather odd for what is a shorter effort. The running time shouldn't have allowed for such a dragged-out pacing here since the film's slow-burn approach takes on a lot of filler scenes that didn't need to be there. Although it builds up the idea of her possessed daughter nicely, the fact that it doesn't start until nearly the halfway mark when she even gets adopted and taken in makes the first half feel like a series of fruitless scenes that go nowhere since it just drops her in out of nowhere. As well, some of the budget limitations come into play here but it's nowhere near as damaging as it could've been. These here are what really hold it back.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Language and Violence.
