Audience Reviews for The Familiar

Far more sermon than horror flick. Within the first half hour, Jesus had been invoked a half dozen times and there were multiple close-ups of people reading the bible and/or praying. Some teenage boys get attacked by an invisible demon they've summoned by looking at a dirty magazine. Crosses everywhere. The whole things is wrapped in a god-and-guns wrapper. Production values, acting and storyline are about what one would expect from a Lifetime channel movie. Abysmal stuff that could only be enjoyed for ideological reasons, as it lacks even a single element of good horror. Well, they did take the lens cap off. I guess that counts. Turned it off after just under 40 minutes.
