If you invite it in, it will never let you go.
This horror film starts promising, with an original idea unfolding before our eyes. There is a clear influence on many people religious beliefs, superstitions and prejudices of any kind. In response to a tragic event, the King Michael attempts to penetrate the depths of every occult, obscurantism and black faith. The reasoning is that, if it turns out actually that these dark forces are nonexistent on the substance and hence unproven, it will show immediately and the nonexistence of God. Hires a camera man and begins interviews, but research and experiments on himself.
The Director was inspired by the ' glow ' of Kubrick, but wanting to focus on the perspective of the possessed man.
All the indications are promising. The Michael manages to film with the help of his partner's important testimony and in his opinion an deconstructs layers of obscurantism. At the same time, tries to be close to his daughter Ellie and has asked his sister Beth to stay with them for awhile. After some days, the signs indicate that Michael cannot handle the challenge that started professionally unharmed. The terror and agony surrounding, while persevering sounds in his head more and grow. His partner abandons him, like sleep. His daughter is concerned, a and her father appears changed. I managed to balance the Michael eventually or it will swallow the dark?
