User Reviews

 
Not perfect but different enough to be worth a watch.
19 June 2020 | by button-7See all my reviews

This is largely a slow movie and the twist are clear from the moment they take place. However the acting is overall solid and practical effects are worth checking out alone. It also doesn't rely on some of the overused visuals most possession movies like to use and the ending was great.
