#317 Ava’s Possessions (2015)

William Sadler, that is all I have to say. The mom is from a bunch of stuff, but probably most famous for American Pie. The older lady at the magic shop, she was the star of  Tales From the Crypt episode.

This is about possession, but it is done in a very unique way in how it’s presented, but more importantly, how the public accept it, to an extent. This film goes way out of it’s way to pay homage perhaps to Suspiria with all of the lighting techniques. It got to a point of almost distracting, and that’s rarely a good thing. You want the lighting to amplify the story or to compliment it, not be the focal point. I really liked how the story was told, and it really progressed and built up at a very satisfying pace. By the end, you are not left with many unanswered questions, unless you are dwelling on some stupid shit, or I may have missed something, I am sure. This was the most fun I’ve had with a possession film since The Last Exorcism. The last 10 minutes or so really ties everything together, and don’t sell yourself short because not everything is known until the end.

Rating – 6.3 seems fair. I could see myself going higher if it was more fun the second time, which it may actually be. Some movies do better upon multiple viewings.
