Mia Medina (Michelle Ang) has finally found the perfect subject for her PhD thesis film on Alzheimer s Disease. For the next several months, cameras will record the everyday life of mother Deborah Logan (Jill Larson) and her daughter Sarah (Anne Ramsay). But as the days progress, strange things beginning to happen around Deborah that are not consistent with any findings about Alzheimer s. It becomes apparent that there s something besides Alzheimer s that has taken control of Deborah s life. It s an evil that is far worse than the debilitating disease with which she was first diagnosed.

I, like most, have become sick of the found footage format. That being the case, I still really think we have something kinda special on our hands with The Taking of Deborah Logan. Here we deal with a very sad and serious condition in its own right, Alzheimers. We take that already super serious condition, we toss in something even more sinister and the end result is a film that can easily fill the void of any Paranormal Activity fan who is down and out about there being no new film this October. The film is smart beyond belief for the genre norm these days. People do smart things, logic is used, and the film still finds a way to build tension and at times scare the hell out of you! I was impressed all around with this one and I think it may just be one of the year’s best!

We can’t keep talking this film up without mentioning the acting skills of Jill Larson who plays the film’s Deborah Logan. If you handed out genre awards I don’t see how she couldn’t nominated for something. The same really could be said for just about everyone in the movie. It is the perfect storm of casting from old to young. I know we’ve seen a million movies like this, but trust me this is a must see. There is just something different about this movie and it makes it blast. This movie goes a long way in showing that maybe just maybe there is some life in this style of horror movie making left.
