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

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.

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"The dissolution of a married couple takes on a manically supernatural air in Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession, a hypnotic and sickly hysterical monster movie that pathologizes everything from sex and monogamy to identity and subjectivity to biology and the preternatural. Essentially, nothing in the film is sacred, effectively heightening its deliberate descent into madness. Still, as crazy as this fever dream gets, its emotional core remains intact, thanks to unbelievably committed performances b"

" Anna, the mad housewife from Berlin So basically. This chick fucks an octopus-squid-kraken thing so you know she's off her rocker. Or maybe it's just good dick preferable to that of her husband's, who am I to judge? Isabelle Adjani gives a monstrous, manic and completely hysterical performance as the batshit nutty Anna, a woman who is completely mentally and physically repulsed by her husband and proceeds to create a doppelganger of herself and him through some strange unfathomable dark "

"Ex-vakooja Mark saapuu kotiinsa Länsi-Saksan puoleiseen Berliiniin. Eletään kylmän sodan hyytävimpiä, tulenarimpia ja vainoharhaisimpia aikoja. Markin suhde etäiseksi kasvaneeseen vaimoon ja parin yhteiseen poikaankin on omituisen kylmä ja byrokraattinen, vainoharhainen. Pikkuhiljaa Markille alkaa valjeta, että emännällä on nyt elämässään toinen tai useita muita miehiä ja Mark itse on jäänyt poissaolevana auttamatta täysin paitsioon, mikä suistaa parisuhteen vain entistä p"
