I am sure you have heard about this film with Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke in the lead role about a Satanic cult in a small town. When it comes to cults like this one it can be a subject that not many understands and the film is trying to show that. People getting scared of something they do not understand.
A father, John Gray, is accused of abusing his daughter but he doesn’t remember the abuse. So professor Kenneth Raines is called in to do a session with him. Professor Raines is a specialist in making people remember things they might have forgotten or repressed. The lead detective Bruce Kenner and Professor Raines leave for a church to talk to John’s daughter Angela about the abuse, later show the abuse was about something else – Satanism. So how are the police going to tackle this? And how are they going to catch the members?
Regression offers a lot of mind fucks through the film, makes you think and suspect everyone as a member of the cult. I’d recommend this film. It’s not a horror film but it’s a drama mystery one.
You see actors like Emma Watson, Ethan Hawke, David Thewlis, Devon Bostick, Aaron Ashmore, Dale Dickey and many more.
I’ve heard mixed opinions about this movie so here I am seeing if it’s worth anything. I don’t mind seeing the bad ones – because you can’t see and think that every movie is any good.
Michael King loses his wife in a freak accident and it’s known that he doesn’t believe in God or the devil – which makes him an easy target for demonic possession. He starts his own investigation about the supernatural and anything demonic to prove if they exist or not. He’s looking at the darkest black magic out there – and we all know how that will end. And he’s doing interviews – interviewing this guy who prayed to the devil to make his father stop sexually assault him and he dies from a heart attack and then the guy he is interviewing begins to hear something.. He had put out cameras in his house to document anything that might happen while he is reading spells – dark spells. Now if there’s anything us horror fans know is that – don’t play with something you don’t know what it is and do not mock it.
The movie itself was filmed like the impression of found footage but still it wasn’t. Because no wobbly cameras or lower quality like found footage are. The movie is quite short and you don’t get eased into it like with horror movies so it begins fast. But it comes in waves – here and there. But would I recommend the movie? Sure, if you like this kind of movie. I think with Paranormal Activity opened alot of new doors for horror movies – some where actually good and some just plain out BAD. This one – is somewhere in the middle. I’ve seen a couple horror movies in my days – good ones, weird ones and bad ones. And this one was weird and bad at once.
You see actors like Shane Johnson, Ella Anderson, Cara Pifko, Tomas Arana, Luke Baines, Dale Dickey, Cullen Douglas and many more.
