Adam Robitel‘s The Taking of Deborah Logan (2015), aka The Taking (2015) now has one creepy looking movie poster. This movie is from the producers of X-Men and Trick ‘R Treat. This film seeks to blend Alzheimer’s disease with the paranormal. I am noticing a lot more movies trying to mix science and the paranormal so well that they really blur the lines between the two. Cast in this horror film are Jill Larson, Anne Ramsay, Michelle Ang and Ryan Cutrona.
Synopsis: Mia Medina (Michelle Ang; My Wedding and Other Secrets, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son) has finally found the perfect subject for her PhD thesis film on Alzheimer’s Disease. For the next several months, cameras will record the everyday life of mother Deborah Logan (Jill Larson; ABC’s "All My Children," Shutter Island) and her daughter, Sarah (Anne Ramsay; Planet of the Apes, A League of Their Own, NBC’s "Mad About You," ABC Family’s "The Secret Life of the American Teenager").
But as the days progress, strange things begin to happen around Deborah that are not consistent with any findings about Alzheimer’s. It becomes apparent that there’s something besides Alzheimer’s that has taken control of Deborah’s life. It’s an evil that is far worse than the debilitating disease with which she was first diagnosed.
Directed by Adam Robitel
Official Synopsis: What starts as a poignant medical documentary about Deborah Logan's descent into Alzheimer's disease and her daughter's struggles as caregiver degenerates into a maddening portrayal of dementia at its most frightening, as hair-raising events begin to plague the family and crew and an unspeakable malevolence threatens to tear the very fabric of sanity from them all.
