Reviews [click links to read more]:

“The story is hokey, and the CGI is reprehensible (why is it everyone who’s possessed lately has blacked-out eyes and a widening mouth)? There’s may be one or two moderate jump scares (could be more, I was almost falling asleep), and the conclusion is lackluster in a kind and giving sense.” Dread Central


The Chosen features so much crying over fallout from infirm grandparents, drug addiction, unplanned pregnancies, and untimely infanticide that its style fits better as family drama than as suspenseful horror.  There is no big-screen cinematic value in the presentation, though it would work well for a cable TV movie-of-the-week, which The Chosen resembles.” Culture Crypt
