Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"After an efficient start, The Possession Of Michael King drags, weighing itself down with genre conventions the filmmakers don't seem to understand or care about."

‑ Rob Staeger, Village Voice
"A "skeptic is converted" story hampered by the limitations of the found footage format."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
