Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses


A totally compelling piece of cinema which has the gut-wrenching tension and dread of a horror movie, while offering considered insights into how such a tragedy occurred.
Calum Henderson, New Zealand Herald


In October 2007, 22-year-old Janet Moses died during a Makutu lifting in Wellington. Using a blend of interviews and reenactments, Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses 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.
