Horror film. Guilt-ridden evangelical minister Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) invites a documentary crew to make a film revealing the deceptive practices behind the exorcism rituals from which he has made his living over the years. But when he and the film crew arrive at the rural Louisiana farm owned by Louis Sweetzer (Louis Herthum), it becomes terrifyingly apparent to Marcus that true evil is at work there. Can he save himself and his crew before it is too late?

Yep, it's a mocumentary and I'm all for those, though the formula certainly isn't ground breaking. The acting is well done and I thought the casting was very good indeed.
I agree with others who say that the final scene is a little over the top and a reach of the imagination but as long as you don't shell out a great deal of money on this film then it can be an interesting diversion for an evening. It has the added benefit of being the only horror flick in five years of actually making me jump. It was only once, but it was there. Having seen the film I would recommend it with the proviso of 'Don't pay oodles' for it!
The plot is set up at the beginning with the central character of Rev Marcus - a former evangelical minister who is almost now a born-again atheist. He has routinely performed 'exorcisms' throughout his career on the more unfortunate of his superstitious faithful, but at the same time never believed himself that what he was doing was anything other than an elaborate charade.
Now living a more honest life away from religion, he decides one final time to carry out an exorcism - & to film the event for posterity. This takes him away from his home in Baton Rouge into more rural Louisiana, & the remote farm of fundamentalist Christian Louis Sweetzer - whose repressed & seemingly innocent daughter is apparently possessed by a demon....
The plot builds nicely, & there are all the expected 'jumps' & shaky camera footage you would expect. The story is well played out, &, despite its far-fetched theme, always seems believable. Ashley Bell is excellent as the possessed Nell Sweetzer, combining a fresh-faced, wide-eyed innocence with the underlying schizophrenic menace that her 'possession' demands.
Unusually for a film such as this too, a little incidental music punctuates the action at certain points, but doesn't impinge on the realism.
Patrick Fabian is great too as the Rev, forever wearing his suit & appearing to be in control, until circumstances start to unravel around him...Read more ›
Evangelical minister Cotton Marcus(Patrick Fabian) maybe having a bit of trouble with his faith, but he's not letting his congregation know. He blinds them with sleight of hand tricks, basks in the glory of his fathers reputation and continues to perform financially luctrative exorcisms in order to pay for his young sons' medical treatment.
He has had, however, a crisis of conscience, and decides to expose the exorcisms the church provides for what they are, a confidence trick. Accompanied by a documentary crew, Marcus travels to meet one such desperate family, where teenager Nell Sweetzer(Ashley Bell) is supposedly possessed by a demon. Marcus performs his usual tricks and tells Nell's father that she is now okay. Nell, however, is far from free of the malignant entities that have possessed her, and the Sweetzer farm holds many horrifying secrets for Marcus and his team...
This excellent film isn't just another found footage/mocumentary horror film. It has a lot more going for it.
Central to the films success is the wonderful performance by Patrick Fabian as Marcus, in what could be a very unsympathetic role. It is to Fabians immense credit that Marcus comes across as such a likeable character, despite his many flaws. There are also top-notch performances from Ashley Bell as Nell Sweetzer, and Louis Herthum as her father Louis.
The main criticism I have read about the film is regarding the ending. I have seen it described as 'tacked on' and many have suggested it ruins what was up to that point an excellent film. I personally love the ending. If you rewatch the film, little clues are scattered throughout the running time pointing towards the films terrifying denouement.Read more ›
And you get just that. Some might say that that’s a bad thing as everything is pretty predictable (and they’re probably be right – there’s nothing really that new here to see). However, it’s not as terrible as most found footage films. The characters are believable and they don’t make a hundred and one stupid decisions (maybe one or two, here and there, but that’s still less than your average star of a horror movie), so the acting remains good and the camera not too wobbly.
Of course the story descends into what you’d probably expect as the team get more than they bargain for.
I won’t say that anything here is a classic, so it’s really down to whether you can be bothered sitting through – yet another – found footage film, combined with yet one more exorcism film. If you decide to give it a go, be gentle – like I say… it’s no masterpiece, but watchable enough.
