In Brief: AVA'S POSSESSIONS (2015)

Feeling like the low budget horror films from the late 1980's and early 1990's AVA'S POSSESSIONS  is a unique take on the demonic possession genre in that if focuses on what happens after the fact.

The plot has Ava being exorcised of a demon after 28 days. Her whole life is a mess, her boyfriend is gone, her friends and family are wary and the police want her locked up.Given a choice between jail, a hospital or Spirit Possession Anonymous, she chooses the last one and then things begin to get weird.

Small scale horror film with some thrills, some chill and a couple of laughs (Spirit Possession Anonymous) this is an entertaining little film. Playing better than many recent small horror films of the direct to home video variety, this is film that hits all the right buttons. While I don't have a lot to say about the film, my two reactions when the film was done was "That was really good" and most importantly "I know a bunch of people I need to show this to."  That's very high praise indeed.

AVA'S POSSESSIONS gets one screening at Fantasia this afternoon and is worth your time. For tickets and more information go here.
