This is a pretty nasty wee film which is supposedly based on a true story. It is about a woman called Carla Moran who gets repeatedly attacked and sexually molested by a malevolent spirit. She is beaten and raped but the attacker is invisible and at first she thinks that she is going mad. She turns to friends and family but they don't understand what is going on and her psychiatrist believes it is all in her mind. She eventually gets the help of some parapsychologists but they don't really know what they are doing and end up talking Carla into a dangerous experiment. This is a creepy and disturbing concept and the attack scenes are very unpleasant. It is slow, atmospheric and well acted without gore or a visible baddie. While it can't be described as enjoyable it is a well made horror film which leaves a lingering chill at the base of your spine.
