The Cleansing Hour

Movie • 2019 • Horror  

Report
Millennial entrepreneurs, Drew and Max, run a webcast that streams live exorcisms that are, in fact, elaborately staged hoaxes. But they get their comeuppance when today's actress becomes mysteriously possessed by a real demon that holds the crew hostage. To make matters worse-- the possessed victim is Drew's fiancée, Lane. In front of a rapidly-growing global audience, the demon subjects Max to a series of violent and humiliating challenges meant to punish him for his online charade. Meanwhile, in an effort to save the love of his life, Drew discovers that the demon's sinister motive is not only about revenge, but also to expose the dark secrets he, Max, and Lane have been hiding from one another. With only the show clock remaining, it's a matter of time before either the truth is revealed or the demon forces them to meet their maker.
This movie contains 32 potentially triggering events.

(Spoilers) A child does not die, but the child is possessed and forced to harm others at the end of the movie. Their fate is left ambiguous but it probably didn't end well for them.

A character is traumatized by a horrific event he witnessed as a child. He sometimes sees the face of a person harmed by the traumatic event years later, and the event is clearly a lasting problem for him.

A character tries to fight agaisnt visions that are attacking his limbs, but in reality, is unknowingly cutting himself. He ultimately is killed after slashing his own neck. This scene is intense and switches between his point of view (fighting back) and the viewers (attacking himself).

Technically yes? He was forced to hang himself by the evil in the movie, so it might be triggering for some, but he survives the attempt and was never actually suicidal.

I mean.. not by their own will. In this fictional world if a paranormal force is making someone commit acts against themselves is it actually suicide. A guy cuts his throat trying to get demon spawn off of himself, his intention isn’t to kill himself. There is a theme of suicide however, and the demon makes one of the guys (reluctantly) hang himself - he falls and doesn’t die from this.

Characters speak directly to a camera during a livestream, which is sometimes our point of view. They never actually acknowledge they are in a movie or otherwise break the fourth wall though, instead addressing an audience of live viewers in the film.

Calling a DRAG queen isn’t misgendering anyone because its a persona. He (usually but not always) out if drag and She in drag. Y’all are misinforming, again! If anything the guy who said ‘he or she’ was trying to be PC and inclusive.

One of the minor characters is a drag queen, but in my opinion she was treated respectfully by the film.

Not really. A woman goes down (fully under the covers so we don’t see anything), to give a guy a BJ but nothing happens before he gets spooked. There is nudity but never full frontal. So there’s barely anything at all.
