A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
A shuddering exorcism spins out of control and claims the life of a young girl. Months later, while working the night shift at the hospital morgue, Megan Reed receives a disfigured corpse. Alone and locked in the corridors of the cold basement, she starts to experience hair-raising visions, which lead her to suspect that the dead body delivered that night is possessed by a ruthless evil entity.Written by
Was filmed in November 2016 but not released until the end of 2018. The long post production period was due to a change in management, and the new head of studio wanted some changes in the end result. Fortunately, director Diederik Van Rooijen had shot enough material to accommodate these changes. See more »
Megas is actually an ex cop and is hired as "night shift" registering bodies also coming from crime scenes without being a forensic doctor. See more »
The Possession of formulaic and cliche horror tropes in the 199th Possession/Exorcism film released since the iconic classic in 1973.
It's honestly a slap in the face to viewers that they would continue releasing the same old possession horror film with nothing new brought to the table year after year. I guess some people will constantly fall for the same old formula. I only saw this free for reviewing purposes for my university and Im glad it wasn't my money. This film starts out having every predictable cliche trope you can imagine, and the story is skin and bone with mediocre acting throughout. I will say the camerawork and lighting was actually executed quite well, as well as the SFX. But for the majority of the film, you can see everything that will happen before it does because you've seen it before.
