POSSESSION, THE cover image Click to play video trailer
The Possession starring Natasha Calis, Jeffrey Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick, is a spine tingling thriller about a young girl named Em who becomes possessed by an evil spirit. I really enjoyed this film. It wasn't the scariest I've seen, but that is to be expected because of it's rating, PG-13. I liked the cinematography because the more the plot thickened, the darker and more glooming the visuals got. The special effects were pretty good swell, however some of the effects towards the end of the film were a little disappointing. The acting in this film was good to some extent. Although, some of the interactions between the family members were a bit unrealistic. For instance , the way Em's mother reacted to her child being possessed on the kitchen floor was a little odd. Em was screaming and crying on the floor, stuffing her face with raw meat and her mom just stood there. If that was me in that situation I know my mom would have ran to me and seen what the matter was, so it seemed rather unrealistic. My favorite scene would probably have to be the end. It was just so evil and unexpected, I don't want to give it away, but the reaction that the audience and myself had to it was great. I really through me off guard and I couldn't stop talking about it after the film. I'm not sure if I have a favorite character, because each of the characters had the same amount of enjoyable qualities and flaws. So, it's hard to pick one. One thing that really stood out to me was how subtle and gradual Em transformed from an innocent child to the host of an evil spirit. This film definitely gave me the chills, but like I said it wasn't terrifying. Everyone has a different tolerance level when it comes to horror, but I would recommend this film for ages 13 and up. Overall, The possession deserves 4-5 stars! Check it out in a theater near you. Reviewed by Raven Devanney, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 15
