None of which provides the film with a lot of mystery, though Van Rooijen knows how to stage a suspense scene built around shock cuts of a decomposing demon sprite. Filming on the film began on November 8, 2016, in , , with the production team including director of photography Lennert Hillege, production designer Paula Loos, and costume designer Deborah Newhall.

She works the graveyard shift, taking photos, making notes and fingerprinting cadavers, until the job goes horribly wrong with the arrival of the body of Hannah Grace Kirby Johnson. And the idea of a woman being placed in that situation, who had no training or experience, was intriguing to us. He was the one who smothered Hannah to death when the exorcism didn't work in the opening scene, in order to save one of the priests. Locked alone inside the basement corridors, Megan begins to experience horrifying visions and starts to suspect that the body may be possessed by a ruthless demonic force. The Possession of Hannah Grace is an interesting horror movie. Months later, Megan Reed Shay Mitchell is working the graveyard shift in the morgue when she takes delivery of a disfigured cadaver.
Now, however, Megan is reborn as she locks Andrew out of the morgue, and takes Hannah's body to the incinerator. She was fairly innocent; it wasn't a ghastly crime that she committed. When Megan points out that Hannah's body seems to be healing, Grainger confesses that the more she kills, the more she heals. Overall, The Possession of Hannah Grace could have been a lot more, but instead gave up the interesting story it once had for a more typical approach. Sort of like the movie. Actually make them happen in front of the camera, it turns out. She's poised, naturally, just beautiful.
When a burnt-out former cop decides to work her way back into society, she doesn't realize her new job at the morgue might force her to face more than her own demons. Locked alone inside the basement corridors, Megan begins to experience horrifying visions and starts to suspect that the body may be possessed by a ruthless demonic force. Throughout the film, the entity had several chances to kill her, but didn't, and seeing as Megan was mentally broken, she would make the perfect vessel. As a horror fan, it's a ten out of ten in my heart, but a five out of ten in my brain. Summary: A shocking exorcism spirals out of control, claiming the life of a young woman.

A shocking exorcism spirals out of control, claiming the life of a young woman. And sure enough, Hannah, who is played by Kirby Johnson, soon comes alive, escaping from her refrigerator vault and moving around the place with herky-jerky spectral energy.
But the director, Diederik Van Rooijen, who was born in the Netherlands, is banking on the fact that years of ever more gradually explicit forensic cop shows have inured us to this stuff, and that the savage gross-out realism he offers can now play as graphic macabre cool. In several countries, including Brazil, Greece and Israel, the film was released a day earlier on November 29. The story seemed like it was not finished and they were just winging it.

Months later, Megan Reed Shay Mitchell is working the graveyard shift in the morgue when she takes delivery of a disfigured cadaver. Director Diederik Van Rooijen teases fans with a quick shot, but the blue tinge is unmistakable, leaving it ambiguous whether it's the sunlight hitting Megan's pupil or if the demon has taken possession of her. Eventually the heroine succeeds, and incinerates the body. Though possession is the supernatural angle presented in the film's marketing, it's more of a method through which to explore trauma, with the added eeriness of a real-life setting most people find uncomfortable due to its proximity to death and corpses. A wounded Megan escapes, but Hannah stalks her, feeding off her fear, as Megan suffers from depression just like Hannah which made her susceptible to possession.
Death is only the beginning. Megan gets taught how to photograph the incoming corpses and take their fingerprints, and this allows the film to linger on them with a slightly icky voyeurism, especially when the body of Hannah Grace arrives. However, the demon rises up, and Hannah burns her father alive instead. The film was originally entitled Cadaver. On October 15, 2018, Sony released the first teaser trailer online.
