“You acted like a mega bitch when you were possessed. And a slut. Which is fine.”

Have you ever noticed that most exorcism movies end on a too-positive note? The demon gets banished, the possessed person is saved, and everything is immediately fine and dandy.  But what happens after the exorcism?  What is the aftermath of being possessed? I’ve never been possessed (nor has anyone else, ever), but I can imagine that there has to be some sort of lasting trauma once you’ve reclaimed your mind, body, and soul.  You would probably have to seek therapy, apologize to a whole bunch of people, and get your friends to give you all the gory details of what you said and did during the possession.  Kind of like the morning after a night of heavy drinking, but with a more extensive body count.

Jordan Galland addresses these issues in his upcoming horror-comedy titled Ava’s Possessions.  Starring Louisa Krause, Jemima Kirke, Carol Kane, Alysia Reiner, William Sadler, and Dan FoglerAva’s Possessions has been described as “Like The Hangover, but with a lot more demons” by We Got This Covered.  Here’s the synopsis:

Ava Dobkins is recovering from demonic possession. With no memory of the past month, she is forced to attend a Spirit Possession Anonymous support group. As Ava struggles to reconnect with her friends, get her job back, and figure out where the huge bloodstain in her apartment came from, she’s plagued by nightmarish visions – the demon is trying to come back.

The trailer features funny dialogue, paranormal situations, and, of course, symptoms of demonic possession.  Some highlights include the support group leader saying, “Once you’ve been possessed, you are ten times more likely to be repossessed”, hints of possible jail time for Ava’s actions during her possession, and Ava imbibing in a drink and saying, “Haven’t you heard? I can handle my spirits.”

Ava’s Possessions takes hold this year, on March 4th.  Plenty of time to get some holy water.
