The directors in the west always like to make movies about the devil. The devil is not only about demons, satan or other same ones. It will include more, and is always a symbol about devil forces which can give people great power.
To the people who have weak ability but with huge ambition, the devil is not the death who kills people by holding the sickle but the one with the great power of f... read more

Some striking photography, but overall it definitely does not work for me. Except the subway scene. I'm keeping a copy for that.

A young woman left her family for an unspecified reason. The husband determines to find out the truth and starts following his wife. At first, he suspects that a man is involved.

"First viewing - July 6th I've seen a lot of praise among my fellow horror aficionados over the years for Possession, so I've been wanting to check it out. Fortunately the local video store actually had a copy in (the DVD also has Shock on the flip side, which I may watch again if time allows), so I was finally able to get it viewed. And it was...super hard to hang with to say the least. A lot of the character actions & dialogue make no damn sense to the point you start to wonder if any of the "

"31.05. PC/TV, 2nd viewing DIRECTED BY Andrzej Zulawski I mentioned liking madness in movies in my comment about Coppola's Dracula below and thought it was a high time to re-evaluate this film. Glad I did, because it's absolutely bonkers in a brilliant way. Gets too convoluted for its own good at the end but mein Gott, does it have some of the most striking, haunting scenes ever. Isabelle Adjani's performance is divine. "
