Greyed out and depressing

THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING is a found footage horror flick about a grieving widower who decides to disprove the existence of the paranormal by allowing a supposed demon to enter his body. You can guess where it goes from there. I was hoping for some B-movie fun with this one, but what I got was a noisy little escapade that only succeeded in giving me a headache. The main actor shouts and screams and gnashes his teeth a lot while failing to elicit the viewer's sympathy, while the rest of the movie is shot with a dull, greyed-out colour palette and a lack of vitality. Overall, the only thing this film did was depress me.

Annoying Camera with Unoriginal Story

The filmmaker Michael King (Shane Johnson) is grieving the loss of his beloved wife that died a couple of months ago. He is atheist and decides to make a film about the existence of the supernatural. He challenges the evil using people that worship the Devil to show that the belief in religion and the supernatural is superstition. However something goes wrong and Michael is possessed and becomes a threat to his little daughter.

"The Possession of Michael King" is another film with annoying camera associated to an unoriginal story of possession. The storyline is interesting since the lead character does not believe in God, Devil or supernatural and decides to challenge the dark forces. The trailer shows a scary scene – when his daughter tells that he is a monster. But the film is totally disappointing. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "A Possessão do Mal" ("The Possession of the Evil")

I DON'T WANT TO BE DEAD

Samantha King (Cara Pifko) is spiritual and dies. Her atheist husband Michael (Shane Johnson), who just so happens to be a documentary maker, goes about to disprove the afterlife and anything spiritual by attempting to contact a demon. He consults all kinds of people and uses drugs to help induce a mental state for the demon to take root. Sounds like fun even if it don't work out.

If by chance you read the title to the film, you get an idea how it turned out.

If you like possession, hand-held horror films that dig at atheists, you have hit the jackpot. This is one of the better hand held productions as the horror doesn't stem from a camera jerking around while people scream in the dark. The film shows you some pretty good rituals, the ones mom would teach me. On the down side, Shane Johnson is in every scene. We couldn't develop other characters or a subplot. He had some all alone scenes that he had difficulty carrying. And didn't we see that ending before? Gosh, what movie was that?

Parental Guide: F-bombs. Was that a sex scene? No nudity. Major league camel toe.
