There were a few scary moments(without the blood) but they were few and far between. The young Jewish rabbi was an unexpected twist. But the biggest surprise was Kyra Sedgewick in the role of the mother. The movie was too mediocre for someone of her caliber.

This movie was not anything like expected. It is not a "Horror" movie! There are no real scary parts in this movie and it was a total let down to me. Yes there are a few suspenseful moments but nothing worthy of the words Horror, Thriller, or Scary. I still do not think it would be a movie any small children should watch. The acting was average as well as the directing. If you like those so called scary movies like the paranormal activity series, then this movie is for you.

No clue why some people thought it was funny...?? Also if you were not interested why did you go?? Why did you even write a review.
People are talking trash. The Movie was very well put together and made the hair on your neck stand up. Best horror movie I have seen recently sense The Women in Black.
Im a big movie guy and loved it a lot better than some of these possession movies.

The entire movie was excellent! This is the scariest movie about Exorcisms I have ever scene, even better than the Exorcist. I don't scare easily but this movie really did scare me, especially since it is based on a true story. Go see it, you won't be disappointed!!

I grew up watching Rosemary's Baby, and the Exorcist as well as a host of unbelievable demonic possession films. Always intrigued by the rituals used by Catholic priests, as well as learning these ancient rites are rarely used and need the approval of the Vatican. Catholic church wants the possessed individuals to first seek the evaluation and intervention of the medical, or psychological experts before it takes on the matter. Now comes "The Possession" rooted in the Hasidic experience of demonic possession cases. The family as in many documented cases didn't seem to have any religious affiliation. Seems like the non-religious or non-believers are always the likely candidates for demonic possession. The idea of Hasidic belief in demon possession is new and prompted curiosity. Overall found the movie interesting, and it did keep on the edge of my seat.
