In this unbelievably tense supernatural thriller, a foreigner’s mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals - suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as the townspeople begin killing each other in brutal outbursts for seemingly no reason. As the investigating officer watches his daughter fall under the same savage spell, he agrees to consult a shaman for answers - unknowingly escalating the situation into something far more dangerous.

A foreigner’s mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals - suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as the townspeople begin killing each other in brutal outbursts for seemingly no reason.

Way, WAY too long. The payoff in the end might be worth it for extremely patient viewers.

Ok, I can see why some people might like it. It moves pretty quickly with plenty of action, screaming and thrashing about. The root possession story has been made a thousands times. Nothing new or original. I'm not a possession film fan so I'm bias, too silly. But movie should float your boat if u dig that kinda stuff

i know ppl love this film and it is really well done, but taking off one skull for how long it is. could use some editing but the premise is so creative and that ending is such a gut-punch.
