  1. Evan Schafer's rating of the film The Possession

    Unlike other reviews here, I felt that The Possession taking the exorcism storyline as we know it, but from the Jewish perspective, was definitely original than its very overdone Catholic counterpart. I enjoyed the starkness of the photography and score, the acting was top notch, and the little girl playing Emily had a full-on Linda Blair thing going the whole time. Very well done picture, highly recommend.

  2. Sor.'s rating of the film The Possession

    Darkness lives inside

  3. Giles J Davis's rating of the film The Possession

    Some incredibly well photographed long shots very much like Gregory Crewdson.

  4. msmichel's rating of the film The Possession

    Bornedal actually pulls off something rare in cinema these days; a horror film in which one can actually care about the characters. The lead child actress and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are both aces here as is a neat appearance by Matisayu as the Hasidic exorcist. Film is more eerie than scary and would have been better served by its shooting title 'The Dybbuk Box' than the generic 'The Possession".

  5. watchme's rating of the film The Possession

    Awful. Uneventful and simple not scary. Don't bother.

  6. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film The Possession

  7. Julie Kohler's rating of the film The Possession

    An underrated movie that doesn't try to reinvent the whole genre, doesn't loose itself in artsy sh*t and just assumes what it is: an horror movie! Very solid, indeed. Of course we are far from great classics as "The Exorcist" but it gives exactly what horror movies fans want: pleasure and fear!

  8. Arisa's rating of the film The Possession

    Mainstream horror films are typically pretty shitty, but I thought this one was pretty solid. Obviously nothing remarkable or groundbreaking, but still, solid.

  9. Westley's rating of the film The Possession

    It's stylishly filmed, but the story is so lame and derivative. It's a dumbed down PG13 rip off of 'The Exorcist'.

  10. Michelle Arf's rating of the film The Possession

    More frustrating than scary, there's really no good reason to watch this film unless you are absolutely desperate to see Matisyahu yell at a dybbuk.

  11. House 0f Leaves's rating of the film The Possession

  12. Matt Parks's rating of the film The Possession

    Nowhere nearly as good as *Nightwatch*, in case you're wondering, but it's at least a well-directed bad film.

  13. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Possession

    The Benicio Del Toro look-alike is way scarier than the demon. Truly uncanny.

  14. Satori Setiawan's rating of the film The Possession

    What the hell is this? A family drama.. with demons?

  15. myhumaninteractions's rating of the film The Possession

    Good visuals, but boring, derivative plot. Hard to recommend.

  16. Carlos Eduardo Carvalho's rating of the film The Possession

  17. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film The Possession

    Good movie and that delivers just what you think. Herein lies however the problem, while the movie is well made on all counts, there is not much elevating this above the myriad of "possession/exorcism-movies" out there. The first half of the movie was really solid with great mood and tone. The second half unfortunately lets the movie down a bit with pedestrian plotting and a predictable ending.

  18. Gustavo Arruda's rating of the film The Possession

  19. Isramatos's rating of the film The Possession

  20. Igor Leoni's rating of the film The Possession

    Ridiculous 'Exorcist' rip-off that relies on loud bangs and excruciating screams to scare us. When it finally ended I was deaf and bored.

  21. doltcrow's rating of the film The Possession

    Horrible plot. It is worthy seeing Raimi going on horror thrillers again, though.
