Reviews: The Possession (2012)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 1/17] | Luke Bonanno @
    • Excerpt: While The Possession is nothing you haven’t seen before, it’s a perfectly serviceable piece of haunting/exorcism horror that exceeds the recent entries to that subgenre that I’ve seen.
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
    • Excerpt: Offers nothing new without being actively terrible.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: Like “The Apparition,” “The Possession” is slumber party horror movie fodder. It’ll likely only scare 13-year-old girls, but at least it had some decent atmosphere and was interesting enough to keep me watching.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: As if to remind us of his past fame, Bornedal holds his climax in a hospital’s basement morgue where the unleashing of hell apparently cannot be heard on floors above.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Whatever good will The Possession has built up begins to dissipate rapidly, and we start to realize that maybe it wasn’t worth struggling over in the first place.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Underwhelming supernatural fare, somewhat creepy but easily forgettable
  • Mark Harris @
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Better than you’d expect but not as good as it could have been, The Possession is an average film that contains a few undeniably great moments.
  • Jason Pirodsky @
    • Excerpt: A nicely-produced, well-directed, competently-acted, but entirely generic possession film that loses its potential terror by over-explaining itself to us, and then doesn’t make enough sense anyway to work on a logical level.
  • Márcio Sallem @ Cinema com Crítica [Portuguese]
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Cole Smithey @
    • Excerpt: Put “The Possession” on the short-list for one of the worst films of 2012.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guy’s Opinion
  • Ron Wilkinson @ Monstersand
    • Excerpt: After seeing this film, you may never buy at a garage sale, again.
