Donald (David Alan Basche) and Wendy (Amy Carlson) have just moved into their new home when Wendy starts acting weird - in a way that includes self-harming and detachment from reality, and to an extent that Donald has to fear she might seriously hurt herself or others. Thing is, Donald has no idea what might be wrong with his wife. His niece, wannabe paranormal investigator Jami (Mallory Bechtel), claims it has to do with a book she found in the house having to do with demonic possession, and they - being her, her brother Charlie (Jack DiFalco) and Donald - have to perform a ritual to banish the demon. Of course, Donald, living in the here and now, doesn't believe a word she's saying, and flat out refuses to have to do anything at all with any ritual - so Jami sets the thing in motion in secret - and suddenly they, plus Wendy's best friend Nancy (Meeya Davis), who has come by for a social call, find themselves locked into the house, and it seems the spell starting the ritual really works, as according to the manual, one - Charlie - can hear the demon, one - Jami - can see them, and one - Donald - can speak their language, thus read from the book of spells to banish the demon. There's one big problem though, the demon doesn't want to be banished, and uses extreme violence to keep its human adversaries from finishing the ritual ...

 

Now Know Fear might not exactly re-invent the wheel, but it does what it has set out to do very well, and that's to create a very effective mix of haunted house and demonic possession thriller, one that's high on atmosphere but isn't afraid to show the more visceral aspects of its story when needed. But what makes this movie work on more than just a technical level is that the characters all feel very real, for one because they're not overburdened with too complex backstories, but also because their actions and reactions feel rational rather than just serving the plot, and credit of course also goes to a very grounded small ensemble. So in all, this is a pretty cool spooker for sure.
