About the Movie

From Sam Raimi, acclaimed director of the SPIDER-MAN and EVIL DEAD film franchises, comes this bone-chilling true story that's not to be missed by any horror fan. When a young girl purchases an old carved wooden box at a local yard sale, she has no idea of the ancient terror living inside. After the malicious evil spirit takes possession of their child, her parents must find a way to break the curse and free their daughter from her hellish captivity.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Even if you resist the film's claims of being based on one family's actual experiences, "The Possession" is eerily enjoyable pulp. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Aug 30, 2012

Rotten: There may be need for an exorcist, but the power of Christ isn't going to compel the Jewish demon wreaking havoc in this competent but shopworn horror film. – Keith Staskiewicz, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 5, 2012

Rotten: Rather than embellish imaginatively, screenwriter Leslie Gornstein seems to have re-watched The Exorcist, Poltergeist and The Unborn for inspiration. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Aug 30, 2012

Fresh: A better-than-most fright-time tale ... – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Aug 30, 2012
