Plot: A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl’s father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.
Review: I was a little skeptical about going to see this, because it seems almost every horror movie that comes out nowadays is about someone being possessed. It is repetition, and gets boring. However, being the devoted horror fan I am, I decided to give it a try. It starts with a jaw-dropper, a scene that lets the audience know how evil the ancient spirit is. Then, we jump to a divorced couple who share custody of their children. The little girl buys an antique box, which contains the evil spirit, and unleashes it into her body when the box is opened. As the movie progresses, the little girls starts to become more of the dark spirit and less of herself. Many scenes are very intense, and quite creepy. When the film is near the ending, you start to recognize its similarity between the 1973 classic “The Exorcist”, which is again, repetitive, but okay considering this movie has its significant moments. I was surprisingly impressed with this movie. The special effects were realistic, the tone is very dark, and the plot is, well, different. Would I call this movie perfect? No. But if you’re looking for a decent horror movie that’ll make you jump a few times, go for it!
Overall rating: 3.9/10
