article imageReview: ‘Ava’s Possessions’ looks devilishly good — Trailer

By Adam Mock     Feb 14, 2016 in Entertainment
A new twist on an old favorite, the horror/comedy ‘Ava’s Possessions’ takes a disturbingly funny look at life after exorcism.
Every year it seems that the movie going public are inundated with schlocky scare flicks about a young woman being possessed by some evil entity. The Exorcist (1973), the high water mark of the genre, started a trend which has spawned more cliche knockoffs that you could shake a cross at. With the exception of a few, the story usually takes place as follows: Weird things happen to a victim, family calls in the clergy, big song and dance and the demon is expelled. But have you ever wondered what happens next? Ava’s Possessions might just have the answer.
Ava Hopkins (Louisa Krause) is a young lady who recently had a demon excised from her body. Having no recollection of her activities over the last month, she is mandated to attend S.P.A. (Spirit Possessions Anonymous), a support group for victims of demon possession. Trying to piece back together her life, relationships, job prospects and find out where the blood stain on her floor came from, Ava is finding it all to be quite the challenge. And with repossession a very real possibility for those in the program, can she learn to be her own person again?
Having premiered at SXSW 2015, this dark comedy, written and directed by Jordan Galland, seems like a refreshing change from your average “floating girl in a dirty nightshirt” kind of possession film. Co-starring William Sadler, Jemima Kirke, Deborah Rush, Dan Fogler and the always amusing Carol Kane, the film has some fun talent behind it.
Never pulling back on the horror reigns, the trailer touts often disturbing, bloody and surreal imagery of with a tongue in cheek vibe. Witty banter and unaffected characters add to the comedy of the situations throughout. A recommend on sheer inventiveness of plot I would definitely give this a watch. If I haven’t tempted you enough, be your own critic and check out the trailer for Ava’s Possessions. The power of film compels you! The power of film compels you!
