The Taking of Deborah Logan
Like I mentioned before, I have watched a lot of possession films and I have watched a lot of found footage films that came out this year. To top it all off, I have watched a lot of found footage possession films. That is probably why I enjoyed The Taking of Deborah Logan as much as I did. I have to wade through some shit to get to it (it was one of the last movies I watched this year because I put it off for so long) but it was a surprising find. What sets the movie apart from the others is an amazing central performances by Jill Larson and Anne Ramsay as Deborah Logan and her daughter, Sarah. I also like that it wasn’t just a typical demon that was possessing Deborah. The film does have its flaws: characters for some reason don’t turn on lights when they should, characters keep filming when they really shouldn’t, etc., but those can be overlooked to appreciate that we surprisingly have a better-than-average found footage possession film for once, with a few twists on the genre.
