My wife loves "possession" type movies so we are going to check this out tonight.  Can't be worse than The Devil Inside.

 The "real story" looked so much more interesting.  Wonder why they went this route?

 I saw Possession today and I didn't think it was bad. It kept me interested.  I like that it wasn't the typical possession with the use of Catholic priest like most possession type movies.  The subtle scares were nice too.

I went out and watched it last night and it was good IMO...The only problem I had was the editing of the movie, there were times when scenes would be skipped, like the one where the girl is beating the hell out of her dad in the morgue, they cut to the mother, older sister and the jewish guy, then cut back to the father who is now looking in what appears to be a large shower room for his possessed daughter who now stands in the back of the of this large room, what happend to seeing her flee after beating her father like she was and him following her into that large shower type room? blocky was the editing and not fluid like it should be and a sub plot or two with no resolve comes to mind as well...

Spoiler alert! the one sub plot that comes to mind that had no real resolve in my mind was the mothers boy friend who loses all his teeth because of this demon, then bails the hell on out of dodge, never to be seen again...That felt wrong to me not knowing what happend to him...I don't know, maybe its just me and means nothing in the whole scheme of things...

Spoiler alert...Another thing that comes to mind is that the girl was so oppessed with this box but she was always leaving it with her father, and she left it with her teacher instead of taking it home after an incident with a school boy...Also, if the demon could be put back in the box why did it want the box around so badly? it was little things like this that took me from watching the movie and asking why? The dots just did not connect at times and it felt like...But like I said in my previous statement, I found it to be a good movie, even with it's few minor flaws...

We liked it and found it interesting but it wasn't super scary.  Not bad for a matinee or when it hits the dollar cinema.

 Did anyone catch the "real story" on SyFy?  It was on Parnormal Witness (or, some such.  Every show on there is "paranormal".)   It was an interesting tale that would have made a great movie.  Not sure why Raimi didn't latch on to that since it was a unique tale.  We've seen the girl possessed movie time and time again.

After seeing what he produces for Ghost Picgtures and his recently directed Drag Me to Hell...I'm more than a little nervous about the Evil Dead remake.  At this point, the man is rusty, or has lost his touch (he was much more innovative without a big budget.)

Saw this Friday night. Not bad but like dalgoda said not really that scary although it did have some moments.

It especially didn't help that I had seen The Exorcist like the night before which helped to make this seem even less scarier. In the end it came across too much like The Exorcist I thought. But I'd see a sequel if they go there

mlaforce yeah I wanted to see what became of  the  mom's boyfriend, even if it was just him getting fitted for dentures.

And as far as needing the box, I think til the ghost possessed the girl completely it needed the box.
