Pssst, want to check out The Taking in our new look?
See all comments
what starts out as a sad look at mental deterioration turns into a possession film that stands out among the many currently in the genre. well acted by the lead, and surprisingly effective in the effects. while it really pays off in the climax, it undoes itself with a typically hackneyed ending. bonus points for the quote about white people and attics and basements.
Needs to be updated to "The Taking of Deborah Logan"
Has some decent, spooky atmosphere and creepy effects, but since I have family members who suffer from Alzheimer's it felt a little exploitative, which ended up spoiling a lot of the fun for me. Still, I have to admit that Jill Larson did an amazing job with creating all the various versions of her character.
This was a very good surprise for me. Such an original premise for a horror movie (originality's been lacking lately in the genre). Jill Larson and her daughter were amazing (even more so if compared to the flat performances given by the documentary crew).
Given a better screenwriter, this could've been flawless.
It is solid, though. And definitely so much better than most of the crap we've been getting from mainstream horror movies nowadays.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
