Synopsis – Michael King (Shane Johnson), who doesn’t believe in God or the Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, Michael decides to make his next film about the search for the existence of the supernatural, making himself the center of the experiment – allowing demonologists, necromancers, and various practitioners of the occult to try the deepest and darkest spells and rituals they can find on him – in the hopes that when they fail, he’ll once and for all have proof that religion, spiritualism, and the paranormal are nothing more than myth. But something does happen. An evil and horrifying force has taken over Michael King. And it will not let him go.
My Take – The Possession of Michael King doesn’t break any new ground in the found footage horror genre, but what makes it above average and therefore the frightening scenes much scarier is that we are invested in the story.
It’s got disturbing deaths, frightening images, and truly horrifying moments that made would make anyone shriek like a little girl. Shane Johnson did a solid job as the titular character, but hands down to the director by using effective graphic images and effects, this low budget film delivers classic, old-school, emotional suspense that typically doesn’t make it into the Hollywood big budget films.
Horror fans, gore hounds, thrill seekers & chill seekers are going to love this. Yea it did make me shriek like a little girl – Embarrassing!
