After discovering an ancient book of the occult in their new home — that’s when it’s time to move out — Donald Capel’s (David Alan Basche) wife Wendy (Amy Carlson, Blue Bloods) gets taken over by a demon. Each of the members of her family can experience the demon in its own way, whether that means seeing it, hearing it or being able to speak with it. Jami (Mallory Bechtel, Hereditary), Charlie (Jack DiFalco) and Nancy (Meeya Davis) are the young people tasked with saving her.
There’s one great part of this movie, the scene where Donald explains to Charlie that our problems are insignificant against the universe. It feels really authentic and left me hoping for more moments like that in this movie.
Director and co-writer Jamison M. LoCascio (who worked with Adam Ambrosio on this film) has a good eye and the story has some decent twists and turns. Yet there have been so many evil books in a house films that if you’re going to tell that story, you better have an incredibly strong and new point of view.
