What they say – ‘If an exorcism is not completed, evil will find a new vessel.’ So, here is the new horror film THE POSSESSION OF HANNAH GRACE that involves exorcism and what happens when the ritual goes wrong and kills the titular character Hannah.
Directed by Diederik Van Rooijen, the trailer of the films looks creepy with extended eerie scenes in a morgue when a dead body snaps to life. The story follows:
A shocking exorcism spirals out of control, claiming the life of a young woman. Months later, Megan Reed (Shay Mitchell) is working the graveyard shift in the morgue when she takes delivery of a disfigured cadaver. Locked alone inside the basement corridors, Megan begins to experience horrifying visions and starts to suspect that the body may be possessed by a ruthless demonic force.
Well, to be frank – the movie trailer of THE POSSESSION OF HANNAH GRACE looks scary and disturbing to the core. Typically, in horror movies we see exorcism, casting away evil spirit from human body, but that is primarily driven by the movie plotline, but here the story begins when an exorcism goes wrong.
The whole idea of someone entering a morgue alone and that too with a body of someone who died of some mysterious circumstances itself looks crazy. Then, it’s where horror movies shines – where normally no one would dare to go.
If the film is all about jump scares, I would not like to watch such films. However, if the makers have genuinely tried to instill some fun (rather scare) in a compelling storyline, I would definitely watch. Well, the reason of me being skeptical now is that the trailer has already scared the hell out of me.
THE POSSESSION OF HANNAH GRACE stars Shay Mitchell, Grey Damon, Kirby Johnson and Stana Katic. The film is announced for a November 30 release.
