The Possession of Michael King: Movie Review

The story centers on a videographer who doesn’t believe in God or the devil. After the sudden death of his wife, he decides to make his next film about his search for proof of the supernatural. He begins to film his participation in occult rituals hoping to disprove the existence of angels or demons. He then finds that some evil force has taken over him and he cannot get free.

If you like a good scare, download this video! I wimped out and watched this on a sunny Saturday afternoon as a good evil spirit movie can really creep me out- this one would have done just that. OK, all the technical was good and there were some plot holes but these were acceptable to keep the pace of the movie. With a focus on a more “Hitchcockian” approach, a story line not built around special effects or gratuitous gore, the movie is both suspenseful and dramatic making it a great scare.

Believe it or not, it was the sound track that disappointed me. With the awesome photography work and story, I thought the soundtrack could have been more effective in enhancing the movie – just sayin’… Don’t let my criticism stop you though, this is defiantly a must see.
