Eunice's (Deborah Jayne Reilly Smith) daughter Candace (Sarah Swerid) is possessed, so she calls upon the church for assistance - and it takes the church forever to react, and when they send Father Abuna (Nick Biskupek), it already seems too late, as Candace has already died - but technically, maybe not, as everytime Candace's corpse is examined, her body mysteriously comes back to life, so she has never officially been declared dead. But her undead version is a nasty iteration of herself, always picking on the weaknesses of everyone.

When Father Abuna examines the body together with Eunice's brother Philip (Rich Piatkowski), Candace sure enough comes back to life, as if to scrutinize her opponent, and she soon finds his weak spot, like that he was suspended from church duty for a time, and isn't exactly adverse to the temptations of flesh. So she sure uses that against him, and she of course knows the weak spots of her uncle already. So the two men have a hard time to tackle Candace, but sure are helped by the fact that she time and again falls back death to recharge her batteries, which gives the priest and Philip time to regroup and rethink their strategies. But what they don't know is, during these intervals, she (or rather the demon possessing her) is actually possessing other people, leading them to commit horrible crimes. So time is of the essence more than the two men think. And then, Candace has a few more aces up her sleeve, too ...


Of course, when compared to a masterpiece like The Exorcist, Exorcism of the Dead sure falls short, but taken on its own terms as a piece of low budget horror entertainment, this one does really well, as it's a movie that surely knows its limitations and makes the most of them, working with atmosphere rather than spectacle, as well as putting an emphasis on its narration and character development to make this one a really tense and suspenseful, and thus very enjoyable genre movie.
