Literally the whole movie is revolving around Katie, Micah, and the demon haunting and stalking Katie. Although you never see the actual thing, you see it crawl under blankets, throw Katie around, turn on lights and make really loud thumping noises.

Kind of? Katie is abused by a demon/inhumane spirit, but completely forgets once she is possessed.

*SPOILERS* Micah caslights Katie through the movie, a lot, to belive that he can solve the issue and that Katie shouldn't seek help
