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.

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.

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!!!

It is based on true story but last 15 minutes of movie is totally unbelievable. Some of the sequences just defies logic and science.
But overall, it is good scary movie but not scariest of all time. "the Exorcist" (1973) was and remains scariest movie of all time ,even to this day! Wroth watching once.
