When Atheists Play With Demons

1

Written/Director: David Jung

Starring: Shane Johnson, Ella Anderson, Cara Pifko

Summary: When Michael’s wife dies after receiving some shitty advice from a psychic, he decides he’ll show everyone that there’s no such thing as God or the Devil by making a documentary of his research. He’s an atheist so his “Doubting Thomas” attitude leads him to attempt at demonic possession by tracking self-proclaimed demonologists and necromancers. At first he thinks it’s all bullshit, until unexplainable things start happening. Has his grief pushed him over the edge or has he finally found the proof he’s been looking for?

If you don’t know by now, I absolutely love learning about the Paranormal. I’m one of those who believes in ghosts and demons. It’s always been a fascinating topic for me so I always like to keep my eye out for movies that deal with the paranormal like The Conjuring series.

This was a nice change in pace rom the standard “oh I’m going to play with a Ouija board, oops I summoned a demon” plot. This guy is actually WANTS to be possessed! He WANTS to have this horrible thing done to him! Of course, since he doesn’t believe in the paranormal, he doesn’t think there is a danger to dabbling in the occult. It especially tickled me pink when all these paranormal things were happening and he finally believes in the supernatural, that he turns to God to save him. Isn’t that how it always works?

I enjoyed it and I’ll give it an 8/10. It wasn’t the greatest horror film I’ve seen Anchor Bay Films put out but it was pretty cool and a little scary.

What do you think? Have any of you seen this one yet?

Devil Movies on the Rise

Is it just me or is Hollywood desperate for movies about Satan’s minions?

Seriously, everytime my dad and I go to the movies there are three horror movie trailers playing back to back. At first it used to freak me out(you can thank Paranormal Activity for that) but now it’s just getting a little boring. The reason why I’m so bored with these movies is because they’re generally the same story.

It’s either one of these storylines:  haunted house, cursed object, demonic possession, or “based on true events”.

Here’s a list of movies that are coming out this year:

 First on the list is “Occulus”, the story about a sister and brother trying to prove that it was a cursed mirror that turned their father into a killer. As much as I like the idea of Amy Pond being off on her own solving a case of the killer mirror, I can’t help but think….WHERE’S RORY?!

This next one is called “The Quiet Ones”. This falls in the “Based Off a True Events” and demonic possession category. This is about a group of students who perform an experiment to prove that ghosts and demons are things we make up in our minds. This is supposed to be based off a true story but after reading this article this movie is very very very very far from the supposed true event. Thanks but I’ll pass.

The last movie I want to talk about is “Deliver Us From Evil”. This also falls into the “true events” and maybe hauntings category. This is based on the eye witness accounts of NYPD officer Ralph Sarchie as he battles evil. I might check out the book first before I watch this one, just so I have something to compare it to.

Same old same old. But If you’re into these kinds of movies then by all means check them out. Just remember that you’re probably watching something that’s predictable.
