“..while not perfect, this tale of possession hits way more than it misses and follows perfectly in the footsteps of the Paranormal Activity franchise..”
by Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton [Dread Central]
“..usefully reminds us how little it takes to make some people scream in a crowded movie theater..”
by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe]

“..those last two minutes prove that in the right circumstances...the power of crap compels you!..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]

“..this whole idea is played out and bored me throughout..”
by Kevin McCarthy [NerdTears.com]
“..there is lots of tedious exposition..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
“..the only thing you will wind up waging war against is utter boredom..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]
Review rate : D

“..the movie has no ending..”
by Eric D. Snider [Film.com]
“..the filmmaker tags along, capturing all the shrieking, cursing, howling, body twisting and slamming with phony surveillance images and irritatingly palsied camerawork..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..overall storytelling is adroitly fleet and economical..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]

“..good to know that someone has a sense of humor about this diabolical foolishness..”
by Mark Jenkins [Washington Post]
1 of 4

“..frights or heady provocations, but to increasingly raised eyebrows and furious head-shaking..”
by Dustin Putman [DustinPutman.com]
2 of 4

“..definitely puts a nifty indie spin on the demonic possession genre..”
by Jennie Punter [Globe and Mail]
“..constant rehashing of the same previously shown footage to establish any sort of prevailing mood other than random hysteria..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
1 of 4

“..cheaply produced "found-footage" movie that copies and pastes the most basic concepts of dramatic tellings of demonic possession for an indeterminable goal..”

LATEST REVIEWS

THE CROSSING 2 :

“..an inert follow-up that doesn't deliver enough visual or emotional payoff in its overdue yet short-lived shipwreck climax..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
