And this new starts it to frighten …

If the Satan rose by one step up on a ladder conducting to the sky, each time when on screens there is a film about the next exile of spirits, the poltergeist and an ekzortsizm, he already would sit long ago on clouds and wagged to people from above with the handle. Hardly any genre can be compared to horrors by number of appearing new films, in few places it is possible to shoot so cheap pictures, well and, respectively, anywhere there is no such number of beginners in a shot and off-screen. The unique requirement to these tapes – let they will be terrible and at least slightly original. This task for many appears impracticable.
In a basis of the film the story of screenwriter Tedi Sarafyan, the author of idea of the third part of "Terminator" and the coauthor of a script "Tankistka" laid down
«Michael King’s obsession» – a debut of the screenwriter and director David Jung. From the first work in big meter you wait for any freshness of ideas and a nezayezzhennost of images, but Ship’s boys not especially wishes to pass for the uncompromising innovator. During viewing of "Obsession" you are simply lost from that abundance of subject forks on which the history could go in the unpredictable, new direction, but is not present, the author diligently keeps the next fairy tale about the demon in the skeptic on a nakatanny track. From a picture the real history of obsession, but not obsession the evil, and obsession search of this evil could turn out. The developed digression by types and occultism currents could turn out, but founders of cinema were limited to only two strange rituals. At last, it was possible to use with big sense creative talents of the protagonist (the director after all), but also here everything is banal simply.
Ship’s boys with the heroes went a line of least resistance – more noise, it is less than thought. Not too thought over concept goes to pieces almost in each scene. Why it was necessary to collect data on thousands демонологов, necromancers and Satanists to pass pair and to wave a hand? What did the operator do (and Michael everywhere with itself dragged the operator) during mysterious rituals? All got poisoned by fumes in narcotic pairs, merged in ecstasy, executed magic rituals when nearby there was an uncle with the chamber and spoke:« Do not pay to me attention, continue»? Eventually, when the protagonist understood, what to it the end comes, what he loses to the demon who has sat down inside why it did not go to church, police, a mental hospital? Well, would lock it in soft chamber, the rigid chamber or a prison cell of a monastery, there he quickly started missing together with the new neighbor in an inner world. No, King runs on the city, rolls bloody eyes and is noisy suffers from noise in the head.
However, to approach to a horror with a criterion of logic, judiciousness and common sense – a task obviously failure. The horror should frighten, and "Obsession" nicely consults with it. Here the arsenal at Jung is rather wide – can make a noise in time, is mysterious позавывать, повыскакивать from darkness. Especially he, probably, liked focuses with noise in the image, with hindrances on a film. Повздрагивать will be from what. Suffices in a picture and blood habitual for a genre, the hero of spoils much and with pleasure. Strongly artificial computer ants a little drop out of an overall picture, but it only if to get accustomed.
