Reviews

Based on a true story, The Possession is the terrifying story of how one family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil.

Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Em’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst, only to discover that the box was built to contain a dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.

I am a big horror fan and found this very enjoyable. Supposedly based on true events,but make of that what you will.
It starts off with a woman about to smash a box with a hammer,she's atacked be an unseen force and is thrown around.
Then the main story kicks in,as two girls spend time with their father (recently seperated from his wife),Emily finds an antique box at a yard sale and soon becomes obsessed with it.
Her behaviour becomes increasingly odd after she has trouble getting into the box,but finally opens it. In it she finds a dead moth and a ring which she slips on her finger,a ring that is clearly not wise to wear.
Soon moths becomes very much a part of the story,making their presence known.
As things get more and more sinister,it soon becmes clear...the box shouldn't have been opened! Too late!

This didn't disappoint,it may not be fantastic or highly original,but it works fine as a supernatural horror,one i think most horror fans will enjoy.

A decent possession movie that is based on a true story. OK ... so the makers of the film must have taken a few liberties to make the film into a thriller ... but even so, scary stuff.

I enjoy a thriller that is half believable and "The Possession" was. What I admired about this film was that there were no named actors and yet those involved in making this movie, acting and directional staff alike, did a fine job in keeping the viewers attention until the very last scenes.

I would recommend "The Possession" to all thriller seekers but to make sure the kids are in bed first!

I am extremely surprised The Possession received negative reviews. It is hard to understand why the critics did not like the film at all. I thoroughly enjoyed the Possession, as it kept me on the edge of the seat for long periods. There is hardly a moment of calmness in the film. One quite moment gradually becomes a moment to scare the lights out of you when least expected. The vital ingredients of pace, gripping moments and settings have been well assembled to deliver a supernatural horror film, to keep viewers entertained and thrilled.

Believe it or not, the Possession has been inspired by true events. I am doubtful whether every single fact is correct. It is difficult to comment on this. Having watched the film, it creates a spooky and creepy atmosphere. The surprise element is strongly felt. An average American suburban area has been affected by the haunting events. It starts with a mysterious box attempted to be opened and containing valuables treasures. There is a curse behind the box. If you are in pocession of the box, then the demon curses you. The opening sequences set the tone of the film. A middle aged woman has been cursed and her life changes forever. The focus is on one family. The couple are divorced and share custody of two young girls. The younger girl experiences the horrifying moments, as she herself has been controlled and her behaviour arouses concerns from the family. This happens as she becomes obsessed with the mysterious box purchased in a stall. It becomes clear of what is happening. In order to combat the spirits, there is a special ritual to perform. The significance of the box becomes clear. There is a history behind the box. It is interesting and fascinating to learn about.

Possession falls into the category of a supernatural horror film.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER on 20 May 2013
Format: DVD
The film opens with the "based on a true story" claim. It follows this claim with a man coming home to find his mom possessed by a demon. Yes, I remember mom being possessed by demons. I warned her about burning those black candles, drinking goat's blood, and opening strange ancient boxes with Hebrew letters.

After the credits, the story then moves on to Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), the almost big time basketball coach, his divorced wife Stephanie (Kyra Sedgwick), and two adorable daughters he has for the weekend in his new home on Always Dreary Lane. Em (Natasha Calis) the younger, more adorable, and better actor of his two daughters buys a box at a yard sale and the next thing you know the movie transforms itself into a mediocre Jewish exorcism film.

The highlight for me was the MRI scene. I would like to see Natasha Calis get smacked around er ah star in more horror films. You can keep the rest of that lot. I found myself getting bored during some of the better scenes. At 92 minutes, it seemed like 2 hours. Dialogue lacked decent hooks. Oh wait. That's because this was "based on a true story."

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. No moths were harmed in the filming of this movie.

As this is only a 15 rating, it will come as no suprise that this isn't the most graphic of horror films. In fact, it was really rather tame. Ten year old Em becomes over protective of a wooden box she found at a yard sale and her behaviour becomes more erratic as whatever was in the box slowly possesses her.
There wasn't enough detail & too many leaps in the story to make this a good film. Consequently, I found the atmosphere failed to develop as it should and I found myself watching it with a rather external critic eye as opposed to being part of the story. Em's mother agrees to a rather brutal exorcism by a strange Jew in a matter of seconds and never seems to question why her new found boyfriend disappears suddenly. The climax of the story should be the exorcism but I found it a bit tame and far too quick. The physical representation of the demon was good and so much more could have been done with this. When you compare this scene with classic films such as The Exorcist, it seems very bland.
This is a fairly basic horror film with little to lift it out of the banal and run of the mill. I suspect it was produced in a hurry to jump on the band wagon of other excellent horror films but it failed to make the grade.
