The Cleansing Hour
Directed by Damien LeVeck
Max and Drew are millennial entrepreneurs who’ve made themselves famous with a webcast they created called “The Cleansing Hour,” which streams LIVE EXORCISMS. The catch? Each exorcism is elaborately staged. Until today, when Drew’s fiance, today’s actress in the chair, turns out to actually be possessed! Will Max and Drew be forced to tell their 20 million viewers? Or are they the pawns in a greater demonic conspiracy? A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.
Max and Drew stage elaborate exorcisms for a webcast. Until today, when the possession becomes all too real.
Cast: Ryan Guzman, Kyle Gallner, Alix Angelis
this was pretty good, better than I'd expect for an exorcist type movie. definitely recommend.
I didn't expect a lot going into this, but I was entirely captivated. You have to let this one breathe a bit and get into it. Once you give it that, there are some great practical effects, it gets pretty tense, and it's BRUTAL at times. Definitely one of the better possession films I've seen, but it's not without its downfalls. They should have leaned more into the practical effects, and not into CGI because when they do, it's not great and takes you out of it. It would have been easy for them to avoid it too. That all said, the ending is wonderful. My god, like this whole film came out of left field. I know nothing is going to ever match The Exorcist for me when it comes to possession films, but this was great and a lot of fun.
Actually really good. Had low expectations for it but I couldn't take my eyes off the screen throughout the whole movie. The ending was crazy!

An absolute wild ride. Such a unique concept and WELL executed. The Dark Lord was a little comical as far as CGI goes, but the practical effects were stellar. Its not often i give a five star rating but this one deserves it.
