Yes, another movie with a generic title you’re never going to remember. This is partially the reason I write these things. Another Canadian entry, “based on a true story”. It’s kind-of in the Annabelle category, and I’m giving it the same score. A box, moths, a Hasidic Jewish exorcist, and a lot of family drama just about sums it up. I really thought the acting was fantastic, the story was leaning towards original, and it took a shot at including tension such as the morgue search. The movie had its moments. On the other hand, the CGI was mediocre and there were so many guessable bits. Oh, the group turns down your pleas to save your daughter? Don’t worry, the eccentric guy who brought you here in the first place will chase after you in 5…  4…  3…  The ending? Meh. The story as a whole? Double meh. Watchable, but not necessary. And before we go, let’s visit this point. When’s the last time you watched a male character being the main possessed body?
