Purchased tickets for Girl's Night Out as my eldest now 17 wanted to see it as a part of her birthday weekend. She said that The Possession was a good movie, but she, her friends and the movie audience laughed through most it as more funny than scary.

To my surprise, I really liked the movie. It was suspenseful, grabbed your attention from the beginning and held it. The story line NOT slow and dragged out, it was gripping and a thriller without all that gore and slaughtering. Well written story based on a true story; amazing! Love the ending! Great acting; believable! Overall, on a scale from 1-10, I give it a
healthy 8. If you have not seen it and you long for a great thriller, "You gotta go." You won't be disappointed!!!

The story was decent and there was nothing gory or gross that you wouldn’t expect to see in a movie about a girl that gets possessed. I thought the actors did a good job and although horror is my favorite genre, I wish the writers would make the characters a bit more aware and not completely oblivious about what is going on until the last minute. Other than that, it was entertaining!

Nicely made thriller that starts off a little slow as the story develops and then gets a bit more creepy about halfway through. Good acting and plot is a little bit cliche but all in all delivered as promised. One of the better horror movies that I have seen in a while.

It's a haunted house. You know, an experience you step into so that you can be shocked and frightened if you kind of go along with it. And the scary stuff is done well in this movie. Special effects are generally good and the film generally looks good. There is an enormous amount of energy spent trying to develop the divorce subplot with way too many awkward scenes of ex's interacting as children are picked up and dropped off, and of the ex being passive aggressive around the new love interest, and it's just not done well. Meanwhile the background story of the monster is treated reluctantly and abruptly. Lots of Exorcist II overtones. There wasn't really anything interesting about the characters. At the heart of every good movie is a good story...The story here is thin and unsatisfying; little more than a vehicle used to deliver a few well done scary scenes.
