Starts out slow but it is only to build up the character and to dig deeper into what she is going through. I almost turned this off after about five minutes but I am glad that I did not. This story is creepy, very creepy without all of the boo's and scares that most of the movies these days have. I really enjoyed this movie. If you like getting chills without all of the thrills, then this movie is for you. They say that it is based on true events, and that's good and all. The movie starts to pick up more so towards the middle. After that, you really get a good understanding on what <more>
she is going through and why she is acting the way that she is. Without giving away and spoilers, I will say that this movie is worth the watch.
People really don't know what is a bad movie?! It's Not this one (by queerdust)
This movie for what it was... was a nice slow ticking bomb but had lots of story... lot of depth to it. I absolutely loved it. It's been forever since I've seen a sensitive choose not to come back and the spirit stay. Lucy was one tuff costumer and you saw that early on when she saw Tess was enterable slam down next to her death spot over and over. This is not a horror movie this is a slow bomb supernatural thriller. So all these 1-2 reviews doesn't know a good spirit movie. This is excactly how sensitives get entered or possessed by spirits or demons. It doesn't happen boom <more>
pow it's a slow take over. I think this movie showed that perfectly. Also loved the cast.
I cannot believe the extremely low marks on IMDb. Surely this is a mistake. A highly intelligent film that had more than a few scares to boot. The acting was well above average as was the story too. Try to check it out. Considering the dross that seems to be sadly and continually served up in recent, so called horror films, it was refreshing to see a film that didn't insult the viewers intelligence. In some ways it reminded me of It Follows. It would appear that Indie chillers are the only films these days that are proving to throw done fresh ideas into the horror genre. So please give it <more>
a try and hopefully we can see more from the writer and director in the future. Highly recommended.
Certainly not as bad as made out to be (by dryadcrow)
I have just finished watching this film on Sky Movies. I checked IMDb as I was actually watching the start titles and saw how poorly it was received, but I watched anyway to make up my own mind.Conclusion...... this is NOT a horror film. This is a slow burning supernatural drama. There is a certain sadness to it.And I really enjoyed it :- Yes, it does have some minor flaws but they can be ignored quite easily. Give it a try and make up your own mind.....you may surprise yourself and enjoy it like I did.
Tess has two mommies (by nogodnomasters)
In the first scene Lucy "call me Lucinda" Amberley Gridley becomes an SUV hood ornament. A new family moves into town which includes Tess don't call me Teresa Ryan Simpkins. She is beyond moody. She suffers from "anxiety, depression, hallucinations and disruptive behavior disorder" all without having been married to a Scientologist. About an hour into the film, it shifts from a simple haunting to one count of possession.The film claims to be inspired by true events, so no one's head spins around. It is a slow building drama that borders on a Lifetime Film. Ryan <more>
gives us a different view of "possession" although possessed people still must have bad hair. Has some light scary moments.Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.
