About the Movie
Angela Holmes is ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It's all up to Father Lozano to wage war for more than just Angela's soul, but for the world as we know it.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's been a few weeks since the last found-footage demonic-possession chiller, so it must be time for another.
Rotten: The film from director Mark Neveldine is so over the top that one can't help but imagine how the Wayans brothers might lampoon it, then embarrassingly recall them doing exactly so in "A Haunted House."
Rotten: At no point does this film strive to be more than a second-rate version of what it is: a halfhearted attempt to make some scratch while pretending the devil exists. Some trick.
Rotten: this hodgepodge of exorcism and possession cliches... flirt[s] uncomfortably with justifying clerical abuses as just a part of the Church's endless battle against Satan.
This movie sucks… I love horror movies, but this one was a huge mistake…
Predictable treatment, deeper revelation
The writers of this did some very interesting research but ended up dramatizing the bits we have already heard of or seen. However listen to the conversation between the characters, some of it is wildly new to film. 2 stars because the writers delivered this new info very predictably.
But I liked it. I liked seeing the attempt!
Great found-footage horror movie
Kept me on the edge of my seat! I was planning of writing a book the same title as the movie, idk, I will think about it! But thanks Mark Neveldine, your horror story kept me on the edge of my seat!
