The Possession of Michael King (2014) Review:

This first movie by David Jung is a clear attempt to capitalize on two of the most overused concepts of the moment: found footage and exorcism. This said, it ends up being much better than expected: The Possession of Michael King is not the movie of the year, but it is watchable and even…enjoyable.

The beginning of the movie is by far the best aspect of the movie: the main character keeps testing all the most aggressive form of occultism and dark magic and ends up going through some pretty “funky” demon summoning rituals. Witnessing all this lots of fun and the first half hour of the movie is a blast!

Past that great introduction, the scenario becomes generic and predictable: a guy gets possessed by a demon who forces him to do evil stuff, and the guy fights the demon back throughout most of the movie. Those looking for a visual show will be disappointed; there is no impressive makeup, no flying objects or no green puke, just a guy with black contact lenses walking in a very strange manner. Strangely enough, these sorts of work out. At least the movie does not lose credibility over cheap CGI and remain quite stressful all along.

Still, the predictable and overused exorcism scenario makes The Possession of Michael King a mediocre movie. Luckily for us, the found footage aspect is not too invasive and the movie remains watchable. A decent one for paranormal lovers.
