Editorial Reviews

Michael King (Shane Johnson) doesn't believe in God or The Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, the documentary filmmaker decides to make his next film about the search for the existence of the supernatural. Michael decides to make himself the center of the experiment - allowing demonologists, necromancers, and various practitioners of the occult to try the deepest and darkest spells and rituals they can find on him - in the hopes that when they fail, he'll once and for all have proof that religion, spiritualism, and the paranormal are nothing more than myth. But something does happen. An evil and horrifying force has taken over Michael King. And it will not let him go. Dale Dickey (IRON MAN 3), Tomas Arana (GLADIATOR), and Julie McNiven (Mad Men) co-star in this intense supernatural spine-tingler from the producers of WHITE NOISE and THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT.

not too bad, I actually went in thinking I'd probably be wasting money, but it turn out I was pleasantly surprised and even jump a couple of times, now I bought it and maybe you'd rather wait for the rental, that's fine, but I will say it was worth it. I'm not going to go into details as I tend to give away spoilers, and yes this is found footage style but well done, and I will add its similar to Lovely Molly in the way of watching someone descend into madness.

Shaky hand held camera footage that inexplicably cuts to full HD establishment shots? Check. Shaky hand-held camera footage with an IR filter? Check. Jump scares? So constant they lose their impact; they build them into the bloody transitions. Budding documentary filmmaker who goes out to discover the paranormal and finds out that when you stare into the abyss, the abyss jumps out and shouts 'boo'? Oh yes. This movie has all the tropes your more novel found footage films coined years ago, along with so many standard horror staples (watch out for birds hitting glass and spooooky children's music,) you'll be surprised the director didn't throw in skeletons, jack-o-lanterns and rubber bats.

This is not to say that The Possession of Michael King (it honestly sounded like they were saying Michael Caine all the way through th film,) is an entirely horrible film. It's not. It actually has a really interesting concept; man sets out to document the afterlife. Hell, it even had some great ideas, and a genuinely spooky moment or two. The problem is that it's so bogged down with cliches, amateurish writing, a juvenile reliance on jump scares, thematic inconsistency, and downright stupid characters that it gets painful after the first twenty or so minutes. I honestly found myself working on other things and simply listening to the movie as background noise.

Samantha King (Cara Pifko) is spiritual and dies. Her atheist husband Michael (Shane Johnson), who just so happens to be a documentary maker, goes about to disprove the afterlife and anything spiritual by attempting to contact a demon. He consults all kinds of people and uses drugs to help induce a mental state for the demon to take root. Sounds like fun even if it don't work out.

If by chance you read the title to the film, you get an idea how it turned out.

If you like possession, hand-held horror films that dig at atheists, you have hit the jackpot. This is one of the better hand held productions as the horror doesn't stem from a camera jerking around while people scream in the dark. The film shows you some pretty good rituals, the ones mom would teach me. On the down side, Shane Johnson is in every scene. We couldn't develop other characters or a subplot. He had some all alone scenes that he had difficulty carrying. And didn't we see that ending before? Gosh, what movie was that?

I was pleased for a 48 cent Redbox Rental (I used my code).

Parental Guide: F-bombs. Was that a sex scene? No nudity. Major league camel toe.

At least as far as I could bare to watch/listen to it.
Take a hit of bad acid and head to your local carnival scarehouse. You'll get the same experience, but save $3 with which to buy some cotton candy at least.

Wide ranges of volume (its the film, not the audio settings on my TV) mean you'll want to watch this with your thumb on the volume button of your remote. Lots of obnoxious strobe scenes, so if you're prone to seizures, well, yeah.
Sooo much found/first person video gimmickry.

Yeah, I'll finish it up, but I already regret paying for this.

I did enjoy my first viewing of this film, and actually later rented it a second time. I found the lead actor's performance quite good and his deterioration through the course of the film to be very interesting. It reminded me a bit of The Shining in this regard, though of course the two films are on different levels. Still, this one was worth the rental. Is it a must see? No. But, of the crop of mainstream horror films of the last few years, I'd recommend it if you are casually looking for an interesting fims and enjoy psychological horror.

What a sleeper! I'm really surprised this movie doesn't have a higher average rating. From a fan of horror, especially paranormal horror, this movie really did it for me. Plenty of cringe factor, which is saying something coming from someone like me.

Michael King,(Shane Johnson)distraught over the sudden accidental death of his wife seeks out to disprove the validity of a psyhcic who's life altering reading contributed to her death. Rejecting God(and he is warned in a most unique way), he becomes a work in progress as he deliberately trys to induce himself with a demon, aiming to disprove their existence. He has sought the help of experts in the field shrugging them off as phonies. Soon strange evil things begin happening to him that also threatens all associated with him. Much of the film is done with the home video technique, a la "Paramormal Activity". However this film adds visual blood and gore to the mix. Michaels stuggle with his possesion is well defined and directed. We are provided a few scares and jumps, but the predictable ending will leave you less than satisfied. Well acted(by new comers)and slickly shot, makes this a good popcorn flick rental.
