A woman, Suzan Crowley, kills three people during an exorcism performed on her. 20 years later, her daughter, Fernanda Andrade, wants to know if demonic possession is hereditary and tries to learn as much as she can about possession and exorcism, going so far as to witness and film a real life exorcism. The footage in this movie is all that remains.
It's a Based on an UNTRUE Story movie and a Found Footage movie, which are two genres that have played themselves out in recent years. This film is going for the same target audience as The Last Exorcism did in 2010, or The Rite did last January. I doubt this film's reviews will be as good as The Last Exorcism's reviews were, while it doesn't have the star power of The Rite. Add in the overall weakness of the box office market and $25 million is likely as good as it will get. On the other hand, it likely didn't cost a lot to make, so it could break even sometime during its home market run.
