This found footage horror film directed by William Brent Bell tries to discover if a woman was mentally ill or possessed when she killed three Catholic men who were conducting an exorcism on her in 1989.
 
       The woman, Maria Rossi (Suzan Crowley) has been locked up in an Italian hospital for the criminally insane for twenty years and her daughter Isabella (Fernanda Andrade) is there to find out if she is truly insane or demon possessed
 
       She enlists the help of two young exorcists (Evan Helmuth and Simon Quarterman) that have not been sanctioned by the Catholic Church, and someone to document all of the unexpected goings on.
 
       They find out that unlike the usual possession by only one demon, this poor woman has four of them messing with her.   There are plenty of extreme body contortions, screaming and loud, sudden sounds meant to scare us, that we've all come to expect.
 
       The poor acting, inferior effects and the hand-held, extremely close up and out-of-focus camera work in this faux documentary adds up to a big disappointment.
