Secular Movie Critics
…frustrating… with nothing to say… cobbled together from a dozen different genre tropes, unable (or unwilling) to find a voice of its own. What begins with a standard Hollywood exorcism quickly downshifts into a cadre of predictable scares… [1/5]
Matthew Monagle, Austin Chronicle
…It’s time to exorcise demonic possession films… hopelessly derivative horror film…
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
…manages to feel tedious at times. The dour environment doesn’t help, the humor doesn’t pop, and disappointingly, the scares just don’t land. …
Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
…Viewers hooked on the spectacle of demonic possession tend to like their satanic tropes served neat. “The Possession of Hannah Grace” serves them sloppy, if not without a certain random soupçon of grisly style. …
Owen Gleiberman, Variety
…It lacks character, it lacks morbidity, it lacks subtext, it lacks suspense. It just kinda lays there like Hannah, but without any of her sinister magic. …
William Bibbiani, The Wrap
…visually inscrutable… more often than not, it’s just plain difficult to see what’s going on, and that murkiness results in an overall feeling of frustration… quick and dirty—and mostly scare-free… [1]
