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.

"2.10. Toinen katselukerta. Aina sanonut, että Possession on kauhujen kärkeä. Mutta kuinka kirkkaasti se sitä onkaan. Synkimmissä kauhuissa ei ole vilaustakaan lohdusta, visuaalinen anti on omassa luokassaan ja duo Adjani–Neill vetää sellaisella palolla, ettei paremmasta väliä. "
