21/08/14 The Possession Of Michael King (2014)

A youngish documentary maker's wife dies. As a committed, even enthusiastic, atheist he believes her journey to have been an entirely flesh based one with no afterlife to progress on to.
Just to make sure, he decides to dabble with the dark areas of spirituality, inviting demon wranglers to do their best. Predictably enough, it goes bollock-shaped and he becomes the organic host to some otherworldly nastiness.

Possession flicks aren't exactly short on the ground these days, but this is very good. Well scripted, well acted, spooky and, er, possession-y.
