Fall of Grace (2017) Review

A father, Jase, deals with his daughter claiming to be seeing a person in her room nightly she calls Mouse Man. Until one day Mouse Man takes her to hell. Jase finds himself in a spiral as he decides to conjure up another demon and hold it for ransom to get his daughter back. After conjuring another demon the demon escapes running amok. Now he has unleashed one demon while his daughter is still in the hands of another. With the help of a failed priest Calem, Jase does battle with the conjured demon and tries to bargain for his daughter’s soul. Until finally coming face to face with Mouse Man who is much more powerful then the demon the two men have been battling with.

The film opens with what sounds like either a TV or radio interview playing in the background that references the events that inspired The Amityville Horror although there is no correlation that I can make out, to that tale. Fall of Grace plays more like a muddle of components from Poltergeist and The Exorcist but instead of the girl chatting to and being snatched by the family’s TV set, the daughter converses with, and is swallowed up by, her bedroom closet. That compels her street-fighter father Jase to take matters into his own hands and what follows only makes sense once you have read the synopsis.

I imagine that both the writer (and star) Gerald Crum and his director (and brother) Michael knew exactly what they wanted to convey on screen but their treatment of their own material is, for the most part, fuzzy and unclear. This makes the brother’s Fall of Grace a frustrating affair. On the plus side the tone is suitably sombre and there’s some interesting visual touches but the film’s real strength is in the pulsating retro soundtrack and the use of sound effects.
