Yorkshire, 1974. The three day working week sees power cuts roll across the land as the country is enveloped in darkness. Meanwhile, the Maynard family move into their dream house. It's a dream that quickly descends into a nightmare as the family discovers a horrifying truth: the house is already occupied by a poltergeist. As the attacks on the family become increasingly violent and horrifying it becomes clear that they have only one option to escape its reign of terror: an exorcism. Based on true events and the subject of a plethora of research group studies, books and newspaper reports, this is the horrifying story of what really happened, in that cursed house.

If you are looking for big budget special effects then this is not for you. This film has good acting by all the lead actresses and actors along with a decent script based on true events which the film maker has managed to re-enact in a thought provoking manner which isn't over the top yet still keeps the viewer interested until the end. For anyone born pre-70s, the costume and sets used will definitely bring back memories and if you are looking for something that hasn't been Americanized and is true to Britain - give this one 83 minutes of your time at least once.
