Surprisingly pretty good and entertaining flick. Some genuinely creepy moments and solid performances. There are some flaws, but for me the good outweighed the bad. Overall, this was a fun late summer movie going experience. 7/10

Family Drama

I was expecting for this film to scare the crap out of my friends and I since the trailer looked scary enough and also because it was based on a real story. But the trailer was very misleading and the anticipation it evoked was met with a surprisingly sad family drama, not a horror movie. I found myself sad for the father, who was misunderstood half of the time, and pitied the daughter who only wa... read more

It's not too bad...

"This spirit is the taker of children..."

In short, The Possession is not bad. It's not a game-changing horror picture, nor is it a particularly remarkable effort. With that said, however, it fulfils its genre requirements in a satisfying fashion, providing a smattering of thrills and chills despite the restraints of its PG-13 rating. Problem is, it takes too long for the good stuff... read more

Movie Maniac posted a review 6 months, 3 weeks ago

“The only "scary" thing in this movie was how, besides the five core characters, there hardly ever seemed to be anyone around. I know extras cost money but, man, this was one barren flick. In a post Exorcist world you can't have an exorcism movie with cheap scares and no atmosphere. A year later Conjuring came out and showed them how to do it right. Had high hopes for a Jewish exorcism but even that was meh. Ah well, at least Matisyahu had a gig.” read more

"This movie is based on the real haunted dybukk box story. Whoever bought that box faced its consequences. Numerous owners of the box reported strange things happening to them on Ebay. So are you looking for a box to keep your wine bottles safe?"
