Isabelle Adjani's performance in this movie is one of the best performances I've ever seen from an actress, she was incredible! The movie is not easy to watch therefore not really straight forward suspenseful but the overall feel was great, the cinematography was very good and Isabelle Adjani was incredible-Very Good! 8/10

"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.

"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. "
