      leone v Probably not one of the best films of this genre or among the most original. In any case, it manages to keep the viewer's attention quite alive, avoiding easy and gratuitous splatter. In fact, it doesn't seem to fall into the horror genre but rather into the thriller category. The way it's constructed, especially in the ending, seems to open up possibilities for a sequel. We'll see. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review Audience Member The movie made no sense a( all. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I really liked this film. In a time when you "takes your chances" with Independent movies that are offered on the various Streaming Services. I was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of this film. The acting is good, and the production values for a film that I assume had a somewhat limited budget, aren't bad at all. The plot and the ultimate "reveal" are also good. I really appreciate, and thank the production company. For making the main character a "single Male" parent! There are a lot of those out there, and they are rarely represented in current films and TV series. I know it's a lot easier to make the main character a woman, because people seem to be more sympathetic to that character gender. But I think that it is a sign of lazy writing, and pandering, when women are always the victim. Currently, the entertainment industry seems to feel that the only important characters in productions should be female characters as "super heroes" or as "victims". Which is typical of an industry with limited imagination and quality writers.  P. S. It's not important, but I think Hannah Ward was totally miss casted as a college aged young woman. Further, my question as to whatever happened to Tatum O'neal was answered by seeing her in this film.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Graphics sucks, nothing was scary.. demons shown looks like aliens. (Should have been an alien movie instead). I hate that they had to over justify the explanation as to why the title of movie is called Assent. Save your time and don't watch this. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review kevin c A man struggling with schizophrenia and trying to raise his young son begins to believe his son is possessed and seeks the help of a disgraced priest to exorcise the spirit. Decent horror film with some good visuals. The films movie poster is better than the movie itself, but still not a bad movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Not to memorable but it's make me excited But worst things is This film is Easy to Predict every things Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
