Storyline

Seventeen year-old Nell Margaret Sweetzer is found completely insane when trying to explain her possession by the demon called Abalam. After medical and psychological treatment, she is sent to the Deveraux transition house in New Orleans managed by Frank Merle, who helps her to start a new life. She finds a job as a hotel housekeeper, befriends her new roommates, and develops a crush on her coworker, Chris. Soon, Nell comes to realize that she is haunted by people from her cult... and by the same evil force that once possessed her. When Nell meets Miss Cecile, she tells Nell that she has been following her since the hospital. Further, she discloses that she belongs to the sect Order of The Right Hand, and that they can protect her from the evil in an attempt to divert the prophecy of an apocalypse. Will Nell accept help, and be protected from the extremely powerful, evil force Abalam -- Or will she come to accept... herself? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Alternate Versions

When originally released theatrically in the UK and US, the BBFC and MPAA made cuts to secure a '15' rating in the UK and a 'PG-13' rating in the US. These cuts totaled around 44 seconds and were a couple of innocuous changes. The cuts are to a scene where Neil slits his throat and Chris tries to stem the blood loss. All cuts were waived later in 2013 for the DVD and Blu-Ray releases in both the UK and US with '15' (uncut) and unrated ratings applied accordingly. See more »

Shame on you CBS!
1 March 2013 | by ihearthorrorfilmSee all my reviews

The first problem with this movie is that it is PG-13. I think this movie could have been a million times better had it been rated R. This happens because the movie studios are only concerned with selling tickets instead of making a good film. I also want to make it clear that Ashley Bell is an amazingly talented actress. The way she portrays her innocence and confusion regarding what has happened to her is soul shaking. She really makes you feel every emotion that she is feeling. That being said, it is not her job to make the entire movie scary all by herself! The first movie was so good and solid, so creative… This movie is just lazy, unoriginal and disappointing. A huge let down to fans of the first and I can only describe it as being slightly better than a made for TV movie. The only thing I thought was entertaining about this movie was Ashley Bell's awesome acting skills. Other than that, the story had no substance and when you finally get to the end, they treat it with kid gloves when they could have gone seriously terrifying. Huge disappointment. The only reason I give it a half decent rating is because Bell was so good.
