A university student (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and some classmates are recruited to carry out a private experiment -- to create a poltergeist. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke of Bates Motel). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation.

I watched it and was very pleased, then went back to find it was made in 2014! I hope this is a new thing, that more movies like this are made. It lacks in consistency and is somewhat badly edited, but as I said, the acting is good, and it's very properly creepy. It gets intense in some places, and genuinely scary in others. I would love to see movies like this get bigger-budget treatment, or at least get into the hands of Scandi noir, as they are making some of the best movies around these days. If you like psychological scaries, I do strongly recommend this. Gonna watch it again!
I'm not a fan of spoilers, so I won't go into the specifics. Just watch for yourself. Just watch with the expectation of realism rather than "cheese."
Having read several other reviews that erroneously used the term 'Based on actual events' instead of the more apt 'Inspired by actual events' (something even the creators acknowledge). The events in this story never happened but the 'experimental treatment' used in the movie was tried in the 70's. So no, this movie was not based on true events, rather it was inspired by a psychological experiment from the 70's and the creators molded into their own vision.
There are very few "scares" in this. The film relies on it's creepiness to keep the viewer interested. The cruelty shown to the subject of study fits in with the era.
But it needed a little more movement. A little more action. For me there was too much standing around bantering and exposition. The genre has upped it's game making this film seem lazy.
The ending will disappoint you. The very last moment is cool, but there were better ways to bring this story to conclusion.
