A very short review of “The Taking of Deborah Logan” (2014)

26 Apr

I saw this one on Netflix a few months back. Yes, I recognized the actress from ‘Mad About You’. This was a very creepy movie and I remember something at the end where the old lady takes that kid to a cave…

Recently saw another film of this kind of ‘mockumentary’ horror entitled ‘As Above So Below’. Pretty creepy and kind of scary like this one.

“The Taking of Deborah Logan” (2014) was decent enough; I’d give it a 7 out of 10.  It’s a nice variation of the found-footage horror movie.   It begins as a straightforward documentary-in-production, as a young film crew follows a troubled Alzheimer’s patient.  Then it becomes apparent that there are even darker forces at work.

There’s nothing terribly new here, but it’s still scary enough.  The pacing is a bit slow, the special effects were nothing new, but the makeup effects were very well done.  There’s a very nice touch at the very end.

Jill Larson is fantastic in the title role.  Seriously, where did they find this woman?  She’s a superb actress, even playing the “normal” Deborah Logan with charm and sympathy.  The screenwriters should have shown us more of the unafflicted Deborah, to raise the stakes emotionally when she gets all demonified.

It’s also fun seeing Anne Ramsay…
