While the film is far from ground-breaking, if you enjoy movies in the genre, "The Possession" isn't a bad choice to go and see. It's mildly creepy throughout, but the ending is pretty intense. Try to go when there isn't going to be a theater filled with teenage girls. They scream at everything and then laugh about it for the next five minutes. Ugh...

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.

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.

I am a very picky movie viewer and I have to say that this one was great. It even made me jump (a little) a couple of times and I can't say that for many movies. Horror is my genre of choice, and this is a must see.
There is really no blood and gore, but the concept is good and the fact that it is based on a true story always makes it better.
I would not recommend this movie for young kids.
