Release Date: November 30, 2018
Thoughts: After multiple death blows over the past few years the exorcism genre seemed to be pretty much a goner. How many times could we see people possessed, arching their back, screaming in agony, and angling their bodies in hideous poses while their friends, family, and priest tried to rid their demon infested bodies of evil? Well, Sony hopes to juice some box office this November with The Possession of Hannah Grace starring Shay Mitchell (Mother’s Day), a cheap-o looking horror film that likely gives away many of its scares in its attempt to lure audience members in. Even the tagline, ‘Death is only the beginning’, feels tired. The genre fan inside me hopes for the best and that this one turns out to be a nice surprise (like The Autopsy of Jane Doe) but the un-exorcised devil on my shoulder is prepping me for disappointment.
