In 1989, emergency responders received a 9-1-1 call from Maria Rossi (Suzan Crowley) confessing that she had brutally killed three people. 20 years later, her daughter Isabella (Fernanda Andrade) seeks to understand the truth about what happened that night.

She travels to the Centrino Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Italy where her mother has been locked away to determine if her mother is mentally ill or demonically possessed.

When she recruits two young exorcists (Simon Quarterman and Evan Helmuth) to cure her mom using unconventional methods combining both science and religion, they come face-to-face with pure evil in the form of four powerful demons possessing Maria.

Many have been possessed by one; only one has been possessed by many.

2012 Guide Analysis: "The success of "The Last Exorcism of Emily Rose" and "The Rite" in recent years have shown that there's no real dying down in love or anticipation for movies about exorcism, even as the movies themselves are getting cheaper and nastier. William Brent Bell, whose previous credit was the rather terrible video game character turned slasher thriller "Stay Alive", tackles the topic here in the style of a found footage documentary.

The story has a woman investigating an exorcism-gone-wrong that happened to her mother twenty years before which led to three deaths and the mother being committed to a psych ward. Shot for next to nothing, Paramount acquired the film in the hope of having a success akin to their "Paranormal Activity" franchise. As the sole new wide release film opening on the first week of January, even if it only gets a small opening it should easily make a tidy profit for the studio."
