The movie follows around Reverend Cotton Marcus, as he’s making a documentary to prove the exorcisms he does have nothing religious about them, they just use the “possessed’s” religious beliefs to cure their psyche. But is this really nothing more then a disturbed individual, or is there really a demon inside this innocent young girl?
Now, I didn’t know any of the actors going into to this, as is the way I like my Found Footage style movies, I feel if you put in some one I recognize, it takes away from the impact of the movie, dramatically. But everyone that is in it, did a great job, I really felt for the Reverend through it all.
The movie really shines in the scenes of the Reverend talking to the Possessed, or through the possessed I guess you might call it. The nature of the conflict between the non-believing Reverend and the Possessed just seemed perfect, the dialog really shines in this movie, it’s what I left remembering the most, and feeling chilled by.
The only problem with the movie that I felt, was the sudden ending that’s in all of these found footage movies. I understand, it’s found footage, we only know as much as we can see, it’s not a script written (well it is but anyway) with a story arc, conflict, and resolution.
