Plot Summary

A young woman is possessed by a demonic succubus who then causes the death and destruction of those around her. An exorcist is called in to bring an end to the mayhem and save the girl from evil's clutches. But will he succeed or be yet another victim?


Writer/director Cody Knotts stated the idea of making a film had been with him for 20 years because he had "multiple problems with the way religion is depicted in horror films." Lead actor Andrew Roth plays the role of Pentacostal Church special investigator Jacob Wilcox, a man who can see demons and is the only one to realize the character of Susie Shaeffer is possessed. Roth stated that his character's complex nature helped him decide to accept the role.[1]

The film is described as being a Christian horror film that deals with possession and ultimately, redemption and "a realistic portrayal of a young woman who is possessed by a succubus" according to director Knotts. It has sexually explicit language and suggestive scenes, but no nudity is shown. Costing $24,000 to produce, the film has received some criticism of its sexual content; however since the trailer was posted on YouTube, it has seen close to 100 views a day. The film had its trailer premier at the Pittsburgh Horror Film Festival June 3, 2011.[2] and was released on September 27, 2012.
