Much better than expected
- The Possession of Hannah Grace review by MB
Judging this film by its cover, you'd expect this to be a typical exorcism-based horror. And if you view the first scene (instead of fast-forwarding through it, as I'd recommend) you'd probably think, 'how boring, all the usual cliches'. But after that point the film starts getting better and better, leading me to suspect that the tease opening was added later by literal-minded producers as acrudely-obvious exorcism genre come-on.
What follows is not totally original, admittedly (The Autopsy of Jane Doe and Last Shift tread similar ground) but I found this as good as either of them. There's also a nod to the Danish horror NightWatch from several years ago. But this is a well-paced creepy horror set in a city morgue, with a sympathetic central character and a scary 'thing' stalking her. It's not a classic but it's good stuff.
P.S. Once you turn the lights back on and let your heartbeat return to normal, the 'Making of' featurette with the actress who plays the scary thing is rather fun.

Not a Bad Horror considering it is just a Rip Off of the earlier 'Autopsy of Jane Doe' only this time instead of a Witch she is Possessed .
Not bad effects and acting Though a bit slow to get going .and a slightly irritating back story to Troubled characters getting over Addiction and PTSD etc... Just to make sure NOBODY believes them when they start to see things are happening that shouldn't be .
Certainly Watchable .one of the better Possession Movies of recent times.
