“It’s a triumph for horror films everywhere made on a marginally smaller budget, truly awe 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,” says Horror Society.
