Reviews:

“It’s a triumph for horror films everywhere made on a marginally smaller budget, truly aw inspiring. It’s scary and unpredictable. It’s clever, frightening and enthralling. And, more than anything else, it’s the best, most perfect representation of demonic possession that I’ve seen in all my years of reviewing.” Horror Society

“The first few scenes are particularly great, but it’s a shame that the remainder of the film can’t maintain the creativity present in those opening few minutes. That being said, the concept alone warrants enough for this film to be watched and there is a refreshing amount of unpredictability present, which is rare for a modern day tale about possession.”Jessy Williams, Scream magazine

“Though the thin mystery about the hero’s connection with the opening sequence (in which guest star Bill Moseley shows up briefly as an exorcist) never really amount to much, there is an interesting, up-to-the-minute angle in the crowdfunded parapsychology.” The Kim Newman Web Site
