Movie Spotlight: Anguish

Anguish is a 2015 movie starring Ryan Simpkins, Annika Marks, Karina Logue, Amberley Gridley, Cliff Chamberlain, Ryan O'Nan, and Paulina Olszynski. Teenage girl Tess (Ryan Simpkins) has been on medication for mental illness since childhood, so when she moves to a new town (Annika Marks) and begins seeing a dead girl everywhere, her mother (Annika Marks) assumes Tess is having hallucinations. However, a local priest (Ryan O'Nan) suggests that things may not be as they seem...and that something sinister might be at work.

I wouldn't call Anguish a scary movie, but it does seem more realistic than other movies dealing with possession. The movie has a top-notch cast, and Ryan Simpkins gives an especially impressive performance as Tess, a tormented girl  who discovers that she has an ability that's both a gift and a curse.

My rating: 7/10
