The Taking of Deborah Logan
Directed by Adam Robitel
After months of searching, Mia Medina has found the perfect subject for her PhD thesis film on Alzheimer’s Disease. For the next several months, cameras will record the everyday life of mother Deborah Logan and her daughter Sarah. But as the days progress, they observe behaviors and occurrences that show the progression to be far more advanced than anyone was prepared for. What becomes apparent is that there’s something besides Alzheimer’s that has taken control of Deborah’s life. It’s an evil that is far worse than the debilitating disease with which she was first diagnosed.
A film crew documents a woman's struggle with Alzheimer's, only to discover something else at play.
Cast: Jill Larson, Anne Ramsay, Michelle Ang, Brett Gentile
This movie scares me to my core. Old people in scary movies amplify the effects it has on me personally, and the lead actress does such a good job at being creepy. Lots of jump scares and disturbing scenes. Criminally underrated movie
It has it's moments. It's definitely better than moat faux documentary horror films.
pretty consistent creepiness throughout, the story isnt the best but the pacing is good enough that the movie doesn't feel to slog around
This is one of my favorite mockumentaries about a truly horrific illness that I definitely can relate to with my family history. I wish there were 100 more movies as creepy and real as this.
