don't worry...couldn't be lower for "The Ring Two" or "The Fog". But if the pizza's warm and the beer is cold.

For some reason I felt kindly toward this film going in. That is, I was actually desperate to like it rather than the other way around. I've not seen a possession film in quite some time, and the poster was cool.

So I watched it with a couple friends, and we call came out and basically all thought it was middling. One commented "it could have done with more Devil". On the other hand, possession films have not progressed from The Exorcist, and this litle sub-genre is struggling to escape from under its shadow. It defined all the cliches and rules, what should and should not happen. This film suffered for that, but it tried to be original (in a Law and Order type of way) and instead concentrated on the court drama more than the possession. Did this work? Well, not entirely. It's an interesting experiment though, isn't it?

It's one of those annoying things that can get a 1 or a 7 out of ten. one comment made though - it's never really terrifying. That's a downer. Possession films need someone to think out of the box, imo. The whole sub-genre seriously needs to shed the burden of The Exorcist and show us there are deeper veins to be plumbed.

I never wanted to see this, but I found a used copy for $5 and bought it just for the hell of it. Based on this thread, that might have been a waste. I'll try to watch it one of these days!

I just re-watched this the other day. It's a great post-Halloween film to watch. I like it more and more each time I watch it. I think this one achieves aspects The Conjuring was trying so hard for, effectively and without so much effort.
