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.

Overall, for new movies, I would recommend this to a friend. It's definitely something I would encourage others to view, although i wouldn't go telling them it's the best horror movie I've seen. Even older movies that have less technology, again, I feel capture the true horror in the character and actor's abilities.
The Possession of Michael King goes through a non-believers process of summoning a demon after his wife dies and he is left wondering why her, and why him. It's that documentary-style film that uses a camcorder-type-view as if it's like a vlog. We see Michael go from a loving father and brother, to a pretty horrifying monster that tries to kill the ones he loved. His wife re-enters throughout the movie, in spirit, to give more background on what's going on. I really enjoyed it!
But it was footage well done ( not shaky annoying footage either).. and it got better and better..
It was about the most believable posession.. the story was well done..there was a lot of macabre weird stuff but it fit the story.. and the main character did a really good job!
There were little things here and there that were cleverly done and i imagine watching it again i will find more as you often do when scenes have a lot goin on!
Its not overly long either so when the pressure ramps up..it keeps up!
Will watch again, glad i bought it (7.99) vs rented..this will be a keeper
I found it with The Possession of Micheal King!
I've been a student of Christian Demonology for almost 4 years, and can tell you that the accuracy of this film suggests the writer(s) did their homework. That's what made this truly frightening. It's extremely accurate in it's portrayal of demon possession. Horror movies haven't "horrified" me for as long as I can remember. I'm typically fearless when it comes to movies.
But, tonight, I'm sleeping with the light on.
IF I sleep at all.
I thought the story was a creative way to tell about one man's descent into demonic possession and inevitably, his Hell!
Personally, I'd recommend this movie. It would probably be even scarier if one were to watch it alone, in the dark.
