Enough with the fake movies already! What a disappointing way to debut the horror genre of 2012!This "horror" is set in documentary format, the shaky hand-held type. (someone needs to put an end to this- and fast) In 1989, a lady named Maria Rossi, played by Suzan Crowley, makes a 9-1-1 call ( how cliché is this?) confessing to a triple homicide. Apparently, the murders occurred while Maria was undergoing an exorcism. The victims? Two priests and a nun. She was declared mentally unsound and has since been locked up in a Catholic Lunatic Asylum in Vatican City.
Fast-forward to twenty years later. We meet Isabella Rossi, Maria’s daughter, played by Fernanda Andrade. Isabella is curious about what happened to her mother and wants to investigate if this is something that runs in the family. My advice-leave the past where it belongs and avoid unnecessary torment. Anyway, so Isabella makes a life-changing decision to travel to Italy and discover the real truth about her mother. She travels with her cameraman friend to help her put together the experience in a documentary.
While in Italy, she takes a class on exorcism and meets two young and eager catholic priests who agree to help her examine her mother. And here is where the chaos and medley of demon exorcism and possession begins. In a very confused fashion that is the signature of this movie, we see and hear the events that unfold: demonic howling, body twisting and vulgarities. The shaky camera technique ensures the audience sees only flashes of what is going on and is left to guess and fill-in-the-blanks on what happens in most scenes. Quite annoying, I must add. It is actually a relief when the movie ends and one can make a beeline for the exit. Thankfully, one only has to endure ninety minutes of this clichéd madness.
This is really a must-not-see. As an avid fan of horror movies, I would deeply urge you not to ruin the year for yourself by starting out with this movie. The only devil inside was the one that convinced William Brent Bell and Paramount Pictures that this was a good idea.
