Tame but strong female led paranormal horror

As usual with indie films the reviews here seem polarizing, so of course I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm pretty sure a handful of these are from people who illegally downloaded the movie, so I decided to give it a chance. The Dawn begins shortly after World War 1. Rose's (Teilor Grubbs, Hawaii-Five 0, the new one) father William (Jonathan Bennett) is showing early signs of PTSD after returning from the war, which he can only relinquish by beating down a mailbox. His proverbial demons get the best of him, forcing him to kill his family sans Rose, who is sent to live in a convent with no other living family. Flash forward ten years. Rose has grown into an adult (Devanny Pinn, who also produced). She admits in confessionals that her father's demons haunt her and she feels that because of this she cannot take her final vows to become a postulant nun (sorry if my understanding of the steps of nunnery are incorrect). Whether during dreams or actual events, we see that Rose is also experiencing what appears to be a violent exorcism conducted by a Priest who had been assigned with watching over her as a child. Two fellow Nuns (Stacey Dash and Amanda Day) attempt to offer their advice, as does the unusually good-hearted (for these types of movies) Reverend Mother Agnes (Heather Wynters, who I'd recognized from American Horror Story) and the calm-demeanored Father Theodore (David Goryl, one of the slacker friends of Young Ben Stiller in There's Something About Mary). Rose continues to see visions of this exorcism, as well as visions of chaos coming about in her real world. I don't want to spoil the last third of the movie, but it turns everything you've seen thus far on its head, unless you've been paying really close attention. The Dawn has flaws, but every movie does. I don't live in the black or white land of movie reviews so many people do these days. There are some good, if subdued, performances. I can't decide if it needed to be brisker, or if it needed to be longer. However the cinematography is stylish and quite gorgeous at times and watching the movie in surround sound bore a few nice surprises. Do yourself a favor and ignore the trollish torrent-spawned reviews and ignore the reviews of blind praise and watch it for yourself.

Surprisingly Bad

It looks like someone got a camera for Christmas and decided to make a film. I always give independent horror movies a chance and too often I'm dealt a mess like this. Some effort in the editing room might have helped but this thing has so many issues that it wouldn't have helped much. Better luck next time.

Guaranteed

Guaranteed, if any movie is rated 9's and 10's you know darn well they come from someone or somebody connected to the movie somehow. People eventually get around to ruining everything. This movie is a prime example of ratings misuse.
