Subtle and powerful

It makes such a change to get a supernatural movie that makes the viewer use their imagination, rather than bombarding them with CGI and men in rubber suits. This is a study of the old chestnut, 'Be careful what you wish for'. A young mother whose son had been murdered, seeks revenge on his killers via a magic ritual invoking angels. It's clearly influenced by the "Bornless Ritual", an invocation used by Aleister Crowley to summon his Holy Guardian Angel and the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage which Crowley attempted at Boleskin House on the shores of Loch Ness. The ritual allegedly requires at least 6 months of preparation, celibacy and abstinence from alcohol. However, it also includes the summoning of the 12 Kings and Dukes of Hell, to bind them and remove their negative influences from the magician's life. Crowley was in the process of performing the lengthy ritual, when he was called to Paris by the leader of the Golden Dawn. According legend,he never banished the demons he had summoned, leading to strange happenings occurring in and around Boleskine House. But I digress.

There have been reviews that bang on about how slow this movie is, and it's lack of pace and excitement. But if you have any understanding of the supernatural, and this movie has been meticulously researched, you'd realise that the real horror lies in fear and what happens in your head. This woman, who so craves revenge, is on her own personal spiritual journey. She realises, at the 11th hour, that revenge and hatred offer nothing but pain and emptiness, and that forgiveness, both for her son's killers and herself, is what she really needs to find any peace.

I liked the dynamic between the woman and occultist, the loathing and disrespect, the sharing and mutual need. There's one really funny moment where they both share their recurring dreams.

The film is subtle in its suspense and horror, with a nice slow build and some really creepy effects. The ending seems a bit clich├ęd, but was saved from being corny by illustrating the power of forgiveness over revenge, and good over evil. On the whole, one of the better horror/supernatural movies of 2017 so far. I loved it.

what a wonderful masterpiece

Two years without seeing a horror movie or suspense, and it was absolutely worth seeing him. An exceptional and out-of-the-ordinary delivery. The absolutely unexpected end. What a work of art. The quality of recording is very well done, and that sound when the entity that passes through the child achieves a rather disturbing effect when observing it. It is somewhat slow, but the slow is to enjoy it, find the taste in movies like this is the task of a good fan of the cinema

I'd say not the kind of flick i usually go for but i'm guessing there isn't many like this one, at least not as insightful.

Wow what a great movie, the suspense could have lasted longer by kicking in a bit sooner (the horror scare vibe i mean) but then again this movie isn't about trying to scare the audience that way. The film really is worth watching and there were moments after it got going around 25 mins in that i thought this ain't my bag baby but i'm glad i stuck around. The girl was annoying at times by not doing everything 100 percent of what was asked of her but that just made her character more believable, the guy was great also and acting throughout was top. This is definitely one of those hidden gems you rarely come across, no doubt will be one of my fav films of 2018 although not exactly something i would want to rewatch after knowing what happens, a one and done but a great one at that. (plz excuse any grammar mistakes of any kind but i'm still dyslexic and a lazy one at that). Big thumbs up to the director, not an easy plot to succeed with, but it worked.
