Movie Info

Max and Drew run a popular webcast that streams "live exorcisms" watched by millions across the globe. In reality, the exorcisms are just elaborately staged hoaxes performed by paid actors. But their fortunes take a turn when one of the actors becomes possessed by an actual demon and takes the crew hostage. In front of a rapidly growing audience, the demon subjects the crew to a series of violent challenges, threatening to expose the dark secrets they've been hiding from each other unless they come clean and reveal they're impostors before the show is over.

It's admirable just how much the film runs with its concept and takes it through original, and often hysterical, twists and turns.

A well-conceived, well-executed horror movie... a worthy entry in both the exorcism and Internet subgenres.

Since demons don't necessarily stand out in Hell, some of them crave the spotlight just as much as us insecure humans do.
