‘The Possession of Hannah Grace’ can send chills down your spine

Shay Mitchell appears in "The Possession of Hannah Grace."

Movies More reviewer John GUlispie shares his thoughts on “The Possession of Hannah Grace” which is rated R and currently playing in theaters.

“The Possession of Hannah Grace” has a very creepy concept. A young woman and former police officer struggling with addiction takes a job single-handedly running a hospital morgue at night. Just days into the job, she comes to realize that the morgue is housing a body possessed by a demon.

Shay Mitchell of TV’s “Pretty Little Liars” stars as Megan who is quite new to her job at the hospital morgue when she has to accept the corpse of a young woman whose body has been terribly mutilated. This young woman is Hannah Grace (Kirby Johnson), who at the beginning of the movie is shown possessed by a demon during an exorcism.

A man breaks into the morgue and tries to cremate the body of Hannah Grace, but is unsuccessful and taken away by police. Megan reaches out to Andrew (Grey Damon), a police officer and her ex-boyfriend, to see if he can run the fingerprints she has taken from the body of Hannah Grace.

Other strange things start to take place and people begin to go missing. Megan realizes that the body of Hannah Grace seems to be healing itself slowly.

Meanwhile, Stana Katie of TV’s “Castle” plays hospital nurse Lisa, who is a friend to Megan and tries to help her get her life back on track following an incident involving Megan as a police officer that ended in tragedy.

“The Possession of Hannah Grace” has its moments of suspense as you wait and watch for the next scary thing to happen. The movie also had me wondering how it would be resolved in addition to making a mental note to never take a job working alone in a hospital morgue.

John Gllllspie is the public relations director for the Huntington Museum of Art.
