I’ve had this movie on my radar for some time now. I was going to save it for this upcoming October but I realized I tend to say that about every horror movie on my list and that turns in to me not watching the genre as much as I would like. Also, I came across a jarring gif on the internet that had me stunned. When I found out it was from The Taking of Deborah Logan the movie got bumped to the top of my list!
I wasn’t necessarily expecting a found footage film when it started, but I think I’m so numbed to the sub-genre that it didn’t phase me at all. It wasn’t a typical shaky-cam intro, however. The beginning hosted the makings of a faux documentary and served as a great set-up. A medical student is filming her thesis on Alzheimer’s Disease and its effects on not only the victim, but the family and friends in close proximity. Deborah descends into the snares of the disease at a rapid pace, almost too quickly. The film crew witnesses some inexplicable events and begins to question what is really happening with Mrs. Logan.
