The movie is shot completely from the first person perspective, which was not only unusual but very interesting.  I really enjoyed the point of view.  The movie was a little slow through the first half, but eventually does pick up speed. If you’re looking for non stop action this movie may not be for you. The plot was unique and not the average possession we’ve seen over and over again. In my opinion the movie was decent. I don’t expect it to have a huge following, but it’s worth watching.

Grace: The Possession is now out on DVD, and is available at most retailers and is on Netflix DVD.
