The soundtrack is legit! It's a very simple premise we've seen 100 times before: Demon Possession. What I enjoyed about this (as opposed to most entries in the sub-genre) is that it didn't attempt to explain the unexplainable. Part of what make supernatural scary is the not-knowing and incomprehensibility of it. Just like Cthulu stops being scary and starts being a cute plushie meme once we see artist renditions of him, so do demons loose all impact when we see what they look like or get exposition on how they operate. This movie lets the *feeling* of it all run rampant. It's a little too slow at times and I think shaving 5-10 minutes off its already light run time would have done it some good. It's not perfect, and I think the only reason it succeeds is it knows what it wants to be and how confidently it executes that vision.

One of the most interesting things about this film is that it is not only well played by all performers involved, the settings and dialogue were fantastic....but the film lacked a better depth into the storyline. Even the special effects and the creativity of "recreating events" through a live confession was done perfectly. What I wish the story explained is....did this "demon" come full circle and absolve itself within Luz??...or did the demon specifically perpetuate itself through a series of victims? (wish it would have better explained that) I really look forward to watching other films by this director.
