Reverend Eckhardt:[voice over] To the editor of the psychic magazine. Dear Professor Ryan, in my work I have stumbled upon an adolescent who seems to fit the classic pattern of a psychoactive prepubescent worthy of publication in your journal. I will soon have and opportunity to closely observe the child for manifestations of abnormal behavior fitting your description of a poltergeist. I will keep you informed of all future developments. Very truly yours, Reverend Roland Eckardt.See more »

Well-written horror, 23 October 2000
Author: Matthew Ignoffo ( from Eatontown, NJ, USA

A fictionalized version of the possession which was also the basis of THE EXORCIST, this film remains closer to the actual case than does the other. POSSESSED gives us a good cast approaching the topic rationally and with great dignity. The film begins without much of the traditional horror atmosphere, and that lends to the realism. Once the sense of reality has been created, there are some elements of the typical horror film, but they are well executed.

Set against the real horrors of the atomic age, the Cold War, and McCarthyism in the 1950s, the film is as powerful as THE EXORCIST but without using some of the FX. There are some genuine chills, and the story is well told, making the film well worth watching.
