The Possession Reviews:

So this film was not for everyone, I personally thought this film was great.An exorcism film that does not involve the devil is refreshing to see, and the experience of the film is played out quite well in the pacing and how happenings unfold. The fact it details the Jewish religion over Christianity is a very great touch, one you rarely see in a film of this style as most folks hear exorcism and assume the Catholic church. While many may complain it is too slow, and another such things allow me ask you this question.What were you expecting from a film that was purely plot driven?Personally the acting was also great, I should empathize with the characters and understand them. The father was just worried about his daughter, who hid her signs of the trouble well until things got bad. I mean when it really showed and she was hitting the child at school, that looked like something that night happen in school over even something tiny like a favourite pencil or item. There was in my opinion no low performances in the acting, coupled with a solid and powerful storyline makes for quite a nice movie.Lastly the execution was some of the greatest I had seen this far, it flowed and was not jumpy like tell the bourne movies. Nothing was out of zone and the film felt creepy and eerie throughout with all of the silence that you should almost hear in many parts of it. If your looking for a truly nice film that will have you walking away pleased this is one of them.It is a well written, acted, and executed film that while it may seem slow moving is well worth the watch. Think of it what you will, but I suggest this film as one of my top ten films of 2012.


The parallels between this movie and The Exorcist are obvious even from the trailers, so I won't go too far into that. Just suffice it to tell that The Possession includes none of the impact or shock value that The Exorcist has. In short, it's just not as nice of a film.However, in its own right, it's a cute competent horror movie. The storyline of the central characters is type of cliché. Husband and wife have divorced, they share custody of the children, there's a fresh boyfriend/girlfriend in the picture, etc. This kind of set up is everytime convenient when dealing with a "messed up kid" film. That method whatever is wrong with the kid can inevitably be blamed on the fact that the kid is just not dealing well with the break up of his or her parents. And that's exactly what happens in The Possession; except there is now something VERY wrong with the youngest daughter and it has absolutely nothing to do with her parents. Without giving away too much, the plot centers around an ancient wooden box the youngest daughter finds at a yard sale. Of course she wants it, and so she gets it. And there starts to occur some rather strange phenomena; most of them downright spooky, a couple type of hokey.All in all, I was pleased. This movie has got nice pacing, decent acting, and exceptional cinematography. There's not much I can search as a fault here. If I had to name my major complaint about this and related films it would be this: I'm not thrilled about the influx of PG-13 horror films. I've a suspicion this is due to a need to bring in a wider audience (younger viewers/teenagers), and create more cash on ticket sales. Because of this the final product tends to be a tiny too watered down for my tastes. The Possession shows a lot of promise, but I can't support but want the writers/director would have pushed the envelope a bit more; fleshed out the story. Then it would have been great. As it stands now, I'll just tell it's a "good" tiny horror film. Nothing that will be talked about this time next year, but I consider my cash well spent.My rating: 6.5/10


'THE POSSESSION': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)A Jewish exorcism movie for a change! This one revolves around Jewish folklore of the Dybbuk Box (which began in the 1920s), a box used to include an evil Jewish demon. A father and his two daughters purchase the box at a garage sale and one of the young women becomes possessed by the demon inside it. The movie was produced by Sam Raimi (and released through his horror studio 'Ghost House Pictures') and directed by Ole Bornedal. It was written by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White (who also co-wrote the Sam Raimi produced horror movie 'BOOGEYMAN' and the Nicolas Cage thriller 'KNOWING') and stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick. The film plays out like a cute routine possession film but it does have some cute great scares in it and the dybbuk story is interesting. The movie is based on an article by LA Times reporter Leslie Gornstein, named 'Jinx in A Box', about the history of the Dybbuk Box which was brought to America by a Holocaust survivor and passed around to different folks who all reported horrific experiences from it. In the movie a young woman called Em (Natasha Calis) finds the box at a garage sale and asks her dad, Clyde (Morgan), to purchase it for her. Clyde was recently divorced from his wife, Stephanie (Sedgwick), and has his two daughters, Em and Hannah (Madison Davenport), for the weekend. Em takes the box home and opens it and later strange occurrences start happening. This causes further conflict between Clyde and Stephanie as Clyde is blamed for his daughter's strange behavior. Clyde later discovers Em's possessed and learns the history of the box. He then travels to a local Hasidic community for support and enlists the assistance of a young jew called Tzadok (Matisyahu), who is able to perform exorcisms.Bornedal also directed (as well as wrote) the Danish thriller 'NIGHTWATCH' and it's 1997 American makeover of the same name (although Steven Soderbergh rewrote that screenplay) starring Ewan McGregor. He also directed and co-wrote the 2007 Danish horror movie 'THE SUBSTITUTE' (also released by Ghost House Pictures, in America). I'm not familiar with his work but I really liked his directing on this film. It has that classic campy horror feel to it, with touches that had to be influenced by Sam Raimi (as it often feels like one of his films). The film is often funny, in seemingly unintentional ways, but it's never too over the top. The comedy never takes you out of the creepy mood of the movie and although the script is routine the movie is everytime intriguing, thanks to the perfect filmmaking. Morgan is nice in the lead and Natasha Calis is also impressive in the pivotal creepy role. To many it might just seem like a terrible horror movie but if you're a fanatic of the category you'll probably receive a large kick out of it's style and the enormous fun it has with the material.Watch our film review present 'MOVIE TALK' at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Hh6duVlIQk
