I just saw this movie for the first time a couple of nights ago and my mind is still reeling from the possibilities of a remake. This is reportedly based on a true account of a family living in the Northeast US, Pennsylvania I believe. They're decent Christian people (Catholics) and are just plagued by something nasty from the realm of the supernatural. Not sure what set all that into motion, and the story does not lend much to an explanation, but the movie itself tells the story fairly well. I would not say it was the best choreography in the world, and it kind of leaves you hanging, but for 1991 I'd say it's pretty good. Having seen everything from Exorcist to the Blair Witch Project, An American Haunting and the Exorcism of Emily Rose, I'd say on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being complete cheese and 10 being I soiled myself, I'd say this one is like maybe a 5. Now if I had seen it in 1991, I'd probably have set it up a notch! Since I understand it was based on a true story, it made the movie a bit scarier for me. Those kinds always do.
Do you know something we don't?
