We enjoyed it

There were several good jump out your seat scenes. The effects were subtle yet disturbing. Being it was referenced to a true story made it intriguing. Acting was good. Though my friend found it predictable, I thought after one sees a thousand scary movies, it is hard for a movie to NOT be predictable! Go see it! It is worth the fee of a movie for sure!

Downgraded version of the Exorcist.

By Italianstudbanger

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.

Raimi Almost Rivals The Exorcist...

By BoggartHunter
Written September 03, 2012
Sam Raimi has a good track record and rarely lets me down. The Possession was no different. It succeeds on nearly every level. Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays the distracted but loving father, Kyra Sedgwick turns in a truly inspired performance as the ex wife and mother trying not to be bitter and move on. Our two little stars however were Madison Davenport as Hannah and Natasha Calis as Em; both two bright young stars with talent beyond their years. The real surprise here for me came in the brilliant casting of Matisyahu as Rabbi Tzadok. Easily pulling off a very believable Jewish version of an exorcism. It brought back memories of Max Von Sydow's performance in The Excorcist. The story moved along at a steady pace with the scares coming in Raimi's signature style. The movie would get a five star rating from me if not for the very end. We all knew what cliche could present, but hoped it wouldn't. Alas, it happened so I left disappointed. The last 15 seconds that shouldn't have been.

Sam Rami and Ole Bornedal make a great team...

I am not familiar with Ole Bornedal, but I am going to check out more of his stuff. Great story telling, great style, mood and of course the Rami timing! Just when you least expect it - BAM! Good scary movie, not gory or gratuitous, just jarring, jump-out-of-your-seat scares. And knowing it's based on an actual occurrence.... well, that just makes it that much better. Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Natasha Calis are wonderful and have that great chemistry that's needed for a film like this. Kyra Sedgwick, well, what's there to say, she's great, always. I only say 'GO' because this subject matter isn't for everyone. I thought it was really good and think I might see it one more time!
