Rebecca Clarkson is suffering from demonic attacks after playing with an Ouija board one night. Does anyone not know by now how bad of an idea Ouija is? I mean, Hasbro keeps selling it and movie characters keep dying.
Worried that people will think she’s crazy or lying, she documents her experiences in a vlog over the course of a week. Soon, shadowing figures appear and disappear, violent poltergeist activity occurs and demonic forces begin to take Rebecca closer to death.
Juan Frausto, director of Road Kill and Once Upon a Time in the Hood, tells the story of Rebecca as she attempts to beat the Devil and save her soul or die trying.
This mostly takes place in one room, with check-ins via video blog, as Rebecca goes from normal weirdo girl to possessed weirdo girl, taking everyone in her life along with her. Your enjoyment of this film will depend on how much you like possession and found footage style films. I’m in for the former, not the latter, so I halfway enjoyed it.
However, look out for the face of Pazuzu itself, Eileen Dietz, in a cameo!
The Possession Diaries is available on VOD and DVD June 4, 2019 from Uncork’d Entertainment.
