“I was on holiday visiting my friend in Sacramento, California, and we decided to go to the movies. Our choice was between this movie and another called u0026#39;The Apparitionu0026#39;. We opted for this one as creepy kids always seem to make a horror movie much more appealing. Usually, I avoid possession films. I canu0026#39;t even force myself to consider u0026#39;the exorcistu0026#39; a horror classic. I just think possession and exorcism films are always poorly done and are slightly altered versions of each other. However, seeing the trailer of this film beforehand made me want to see this movie and again, the little girl Emily u0026#39;Natasha Calisu0026#39; drew me in. I thought this film had an interesting storyline which kept me gripped throughout and superb performances by the cast, especially Natasha Calis who portrays the little girl Emily who is possessed throughout the film. Without giving away any spoilers, I felt the ending was well done and made me leave the theatre thanking the screenplay writer for a non-stereotypical ending – well done! This film is definitely worth a watch. I may even buy it on DVD when itu0026#39;s released. Itu0026#39;s not your average u0026#39;lets walk down the stairs backwards and puke over a priestu0026#39; possession movie. Itu0026#39;s well acted, well written and well worth a see. It has some jumpy moments for those who arenu0026#39;t desensitised to the ways of a horror movie but mainly itu0026#39;s gripping and you want to find out whatu0026#39;s in that box.. GO SEE IT! I hope to see the young cast in some more films in the future! Loved it!”
