Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Galland’s film plays more like a cable-ready mystery than a cult film in the making, offering just enough chuckles to stay afloat. Though sometimes clever, it doesn’t offer anything like the deep-geek inventiveness of, say, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s movies. Still, it’s a nice alternative to yet another self-serious Exorcist wannabe.” The Hollywood Reporter

“It’s clear early on that this is a low-key affair, but while low budget doesn’t have to mean low energy that’s exactly what we get here … It’s all just so flat, and while some of that is attributed to the performances the fault ultimately sits with the direction and script.’ Film School Rejects

“It’s not without slow sections and scenes that could use some tighter performances, but Ava’s Possessions is a favorable genre watch that offers more than cussing demons and heroic priests who save the day.” We Got This Covered
