On November 30, 2018, The Possession of Hannah Grace appeared in theaters. This movie was distributed by Screen Gems, a subsidiary of Sony Pictures.
The movie begins with a failed exorcism. The exorcism concludes with the victim being smothered with a pillow by her father while still possessed.
After that, we meet the star of The Possession of Hannah Grace, Shay Mitchell. She plays a woman named Megan Reed. Megan Reed is a recovering addict who used to be a cop. As part of her recovery, she got a job at a hospital morgue. She works the graveyard shift accepting cadaver deliveries. The real story begins when Megan supervises the delivery of a cadaver that is disfigured. As she begins to have scary visions, she suspects that the cadaver is possessed.
The possessed girl, Hannah Grace, is played by Kirby Johnson. Other members of the cast include Stana Katic as Megan’s friend, Lisa Roberts, who is also a nurse. Grey Damon plays Andrew Kurtz, Megan’s ex-boyfriend, who is a police officer. And Louis Herthum, who plays Hannah Grace’s father, Grainger.
The Possession of Hannah Grace received terrible reviews from critics. The current Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer rating is 14%, and the Audience Score of those who saw this film and liked it is currently only 34%.
There seem to be several reasons for the bad reviews. One of them is that the movie is full of exorcism clichés. Other problems were that the action was extremely predictable and that it did not rise to the level of fear, dread, and suspense that people expect of a horror film. The actual horror is toned down, but according to reviews, this made the film boring.
The reviewers that enjoyed The Possession of Hannah Grace say that it does not go in the direction that you would expect. This movie was relatively short, only 85 minutes, and many reviewers were disappointed by its ending.
The production budget was rather low, only about $9.5 million. As of December 12, 2018, the box office sales have totaled $24.3 million worldwide. Of that amount, $12.5 million came from the United States and Canada, and $11.8 million from other territories.
Will The Possession of Hannah Grace Come to Netflix?
If you are interested in watching The Possession of Hannah Grace at home, will it be coming to Netflix?
The answer to that question is: The Possession of Hannah Grace will probably not be coming to Netflix.
The question of whether any movie or show will come to Netflix often depends on what studio produced it, and the relationship between Netflix and that studio.
In this case, The Possession of Hannah Grace was produced by Sony Pictures through its subsidiary, Screen Gems. Sony Pictures has a long-time contract with Starz, a cable channel that is a competitor of Netflix. For this reason, even if Netflix wanted to purchase rights to this movie, it probably would not be able to.
Some other shows currently on Netflix that may interest are The Haunting of Hell House, Apostle, and The Haunting of Molly Hartley.
