Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses is a documentary film that lifts the veil of secrecy on what became known as "The Wainuiomata exorcism", to reveal the extra-ordinary true story of how both love and fear could drive a New Zealand family to unwittingly kill one of their own.
This documentary only gets 5.3 stars on IMDb, I give it 9 stars. It is probably one of the best and most disturbing documentaries I've ever watched.
There is a lot of very good reenacted scenes, not easy to do unless you have superb actors and a great director. Which this movie has an abundance of.
It also has a lot of footage of the actual people who were involved in the investigation and trial of this tragic event. Their incite is very important and is well balanced.
This was not sensationalized but really digs into what happened. It is hard to watch for sure, but without really getting a sense of what Janet really endured, along with this poor family, it would not serve any of them well.
I encourage you to try to not jump to quick judgment on these folks, that is what most of us do when we do not understand cultures different than our own, or people we really no little of.
