Totally Disapointed

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 wouldn't buy it on DVD but it was okay. I took my kids 13 and 11 and it scared them but for an adult it wasn't a cover your eyes movie.

Great Movie

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.

a 2012 version of the exorcist

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!

Demonic Possession and Hasidic Exorcism

By Smokey Big Bear
Written September 02, 2012
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.
