Fantastic Tale of Possession
7 April 2001 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

I admit it was with some trepidition that I watched this movie. I was more than pleasantly surprised! It's a classic tale of possession and revenge with actors that stayed true to character and were quite believable. The subtle changes between normalcy and possession that Everhard shows is wonderful. Jan-Michael Vincent's acting abilities have not yet been taken over by the drinking and drugs. R. Lee Emery as Jan-Michael Vincent's CO and friend is a wonderful character.

I really can't fault this movie, but it IS for adults (or older teens) because of the violence (lots of shooting between the good guys and bad guys) and a little adult language.
