A pleasant surprise. [Full Review in Spanish]

The Possession of Hannah Grace is a truly scary film and a unique and creative take on the demonic possession subgenre.
December 27, 2018
[There's] something like 55 minutes of good atmosphere... That's about 50 more good minutes than most demonic possession movies are able to get up.

Release dates always befuddle me. This would have been a huge hit in October.

Filmmaker Diederik Van Rooijen kicks The Possession of Hannah Grace off with a striking opening stretch that eventually subverts one's expectations...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 10, 2018
What sets this genre tale apart from its peers is a penchant for not going in obvious directions; even the ending hints more at possibility than simply giving away the farm.

The script is honest about its resources, a move that usually translates into a lazy and predictable hour and a half later, but will later be applauded in this instance with every genuine scare. [Full review in Spanish]

Not imaginative nor clever enough to rise above mediocrity, but it's nonetheless an intense, occasionally terrifying ride with stylish production design and superb visual effects.

November 29, 2018
There's just enough of a tweak concerning characterization that keeps it engrossing, at least until horror demands return to dominate the viewing experience.

Van Rooijen's overreliance on herky-jerky jump scares is a pity, because the movie that exists in the silence is surprisingly satisfying.

Overall, it is a misfire and a reminder of just what happens when you take a similar concept and do it better. If you want to watch a good possession movie, check out The Exorcist or The Conjuring.

Watching it was pretty visceral. The stuff that was really cool was exceptionally cool, but the stuff that sucked dragged down the thing so much that it almost completely ruined what was good about it.
December 14, 2018
I wasn't really on edge or creeped out.

[It's] just totally inept on a bare-bones cinematic level.
December 7, 2018
There isn't much more to say. They try early on, a little bit...then they just give up and make a movie where someone walks around in a hallway.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
December 7, 2018
Instead of giving us a bloodbath, we are given an atmospheric piece and this toning down of horror doesn't work in the film's favour.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 7, 2018
Conflicts are resolved with untidiness and without tension, insistently repeating visual motives and neglecting the use of space, which was what they had best used until then. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 7, 2018
There are a few jumps and bumps, but there's no real sense of dread, unease or questioning. We simply watch the events unfold with a full understanding of what's going on.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 7, 2018
The Possession of Hannah Grace isn't the kind of bad movie that warrants midnight screenings and rowdy crowds; it's the kind of bad movie that quietly fades from memory, leaving the world no better and no worse than if it had never existed to begin with.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 6, 2018
Even with its pared-down length of 87 minutes, it seemed like an eternity...
