Hold Your Breath
There is an old wives’ tale that you should hold your breath when passing by a cemetery lest an evil spirit rejected by both heaven and hell gets inside of you when you inhale. Someone in a carload of college kids on holiday doesn’t hold his/her breath when driving by a graveyard, allowing the spirit of a recently executed serial killer to get inside him/her to begin a spree of body-jumping carnage.

GL84 » After acting strangely during a weekend getting together, a group of friends learn they've invoked an urban legend by allowing a deceased serial killer to possess them on the anniversary of his death and must find a way of stopping their friends before they're killed.
This was a pretty enjoyable effort with a lot to really like about it. There's some pretty clever ideas at play in here, mainly in the way it goes about tying in the urban legend for possession and how it works in the future, as well as the way in which they're forced to bring the past into the whole equation and how they're going to deal with the spirit. The scenes in the abandoned prison are a lot of fun with plenty of suspenseful moments with it's creepy atmosphere, and the action sequence with the oncoming storm makes for a rather tense moment, as does the chase through the cemetery at night and the final confrontation in the woods which has a lot to like about it. Coupled with it's high gore quotient and graphic kills, there's a lot to like here and manages to overcome it's few flaws, namely in the fact that there's not a great deal of intelligence among the group here which constantly puts them in danger for no reason than to keep the scene going, failing to recognize what's going on around or just plain refusing to go along with how to save themselves after being told what to do in avoid that, and it grows tiresome after a while. As well, it's pretty much all inference as to what's going on, since this doesn't reveal anything straight-out and gets a little confusing as to what's going on. Otherwise, this is a pretty enjoyable effort.
Rated R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Nudity and drug use.
