Review: Well it’s one of those “jewels” where you can find excellent acting, especially the possession & college paranoia scenes. Jennifer really nailed it if you ask me. The gradual possession is the best part since it starts as a little thing slowly escalating into a full-blown situation. It’s also based on a real story, Anneliese Michel’s. If you got free time and like paranormal/horror-themed movies, this is an enjoyable one, for a time that is. -Sophia Cynthia Cabral
