Dread and terror throughout
7 October 2003 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

First viewing: September 1984 / Second viewing: October 2003

The opening installment in the `Hammer House Of Mystery And Suspense' series had myself and my father intrigued one September Saturday all of nineteen years ago. This week I came back for a second helping and the power of `In Possession' has not diminished. A sense of dread and terror pervade throughout with the neat conclusion jaw-droppingly clever. Watch out for the interaction between Cazenove's character and the friendly policeman at the end. The ultimate nightmare. 8/10
