Editorial Reviews

Sarah Michelle Gellar stars in this eerie mystery thriller as Jessica, a young woman whose nearly perfect marriage with Ryan (Michael Landes, Final Destination 2) is marred only by the regular interference of Ryan's reckless and self-absorbed brother, Roman (Lee Pace of The Fall and TV's Pushing Daisies). Jessica's world comes crashing down when both her husband and brother-in-law get into a devastating car crash and fall into comas. But when only the difficult Roman wakes up, he claims to actually be Ryan. In fact, he knows things about Jessica that Roman couldn't possibly know. Now Jessica must expose the truth: can souls move between bodies? Or is this phenomenon the work of a much more sinister force? Possession is a gripping tale of romance and mistrust in the mend-bending tradition of Birth and Vanilla Sky.

Jess and her husband, Ryan, have it all. A great marriage, a beautiful home, and she is a successful lawyer. Life is good - until Ryan's prodigal brother, Roman, is jailed for assault and is now out on parole. He has to stay with his brother and his wife during his probation period, but he and Ryan are like night and day. Ryan loves his brother and wants to support him despite his violent background and bad attitude. Roman is not beyond redemption, he just had a bad past relationship with his father and doesn't know how to deal with his anger and resentment. Jess does not like Roman, he frightens her, and she wants him out of the house. Ryan cannot throw his own brother out after all he's been through. Roman overhears their argument one day regarding this and leaves on his own, his belongings in trash bags slung over his shoulder as Jess looks on. She calls Ryan and tells him Roman has left the house. Roman is not supposed to leave the state. Ryan says he is going to return home immediately and as he is crossing the Golden Gate bridge, he is trying to call his brother Roman, unaware that Roman is on that very same bridge heading right toward him from the opposite direction. The fog is thick, Roman is driving recklessly and as he passes a car, his own brother is in his path and they collide. Moments later they are both laying on the road, unconcious and badly injured. They are taken to the hospital and put in the same room together, still unconcious, their faces badly bruised, so much so that Jess cannot tell which man is her husband.

And therein lies the rub, as they say, in this suspenseful thriller starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Lee Pace, and Michael Landes. It is a story about love, loss, loyalty, redemption, deception, second chances, and forgiveness.

There is so much right with Possession: Sarah Michelle Gellar is beautiful and affecting as Jess; Lee Pace is (psychologically) dark and sexy as Roman who might be Ryan, and Michael Landes is pitch-perfect as Jess's artistic, sensitive and loving husband, Ryan. The premise of a woman confronted with the possibility that the spirit of her beloved, comatose husband might now be residing in the body of her dangerous brother-in-law is outright fascinating and could have been mined for so much more than it is, here. I agree with those who said the alternate ending was better, but even there, Possession suffers from the fact that the directors couldn't decide if they were making a psychological horror film, a supernatural horror film, or a woman-in-danger thriller. They got that they were making a romance, but apparently became confused as to whether Pace or Landes should be the true object of Gellar's affections. Ignore the image on the DVD case which has more to do with the direction that the film should have taken than anything remotely related to the film as it was actually made (including deleted scenes and alternate endings). If you are a fan of any of the three actors, you'll want to see this film in which case you should definitely buy the DVD for the more emotionally satisfying alternate ending as the official ending manages to reassert the supernatural theme at the same time it leaves us in a logical and emotional limbo. If you are a fan of the original Korean film, Addicted, you will likely be disappointed in the westernization of a film with a very neat and unexpected twist at the end. I give this a rating of four primarily for the three leads and the atmosphere and the potential. Sadly, potential that is not quite realized.

First and foremost, the cover of the dvd does not tally at all with this film's theme. This is not a horror tale like "The Grudge" but rather, a psychological thriller with a romantic twist. It is nice to see Lee Pace in a different light, away from the "Pushing Daisies" persona. Sarah Michelle Gellar also did a tremendous job in this little known flick.
The plot is good and it is rare to find a film which deals with this kind of story. Buy!

I've become something of a Sarah Michelle Gellar fan after discovering Buffy and I'm always looking for more of her movies. This one kind of reminds me of The Return which I also reviewed. The one thing I learned from watching this movie is that every time you think you know what is going on they throw a curve and twist in it. Briefly Sarah plays Jess and early in the movie Jess's husband and his brother are in a head on collision with each other. They both wind up in a coma and eventually one of them wakes up and that's when the fun begins, all is not as it seems. If you're in to movies that make you think and pay attention then you will like this one and I recommend it. One of the cool special features is an alternate ending that is worth a look too.

I originally purchased this movie because I am a fan of complex characters and plots, and I was intrigued by the topic of possession. I loved the way the story unfolded, and all of the actors are doing a brilliant job. The ending, however, seemed action-driven, painting a picture of the main characters that is purely black and white with no intermediate grays whatsoever, making this film "okay", but nothing really special.

The DVD's extras include an alternate ending which, much to my surprise, featured all the wonderful psychological twists and turns that, in my opinion, would've turned this movie into something really great. Here's the reason why (spoiler alert!):

As the story develops, Ryan, the romantic, loving husband, points out repeatedly that his previously convicted brother Roman had always been given "a raw deal", and deserved to be granted a chance. Roman's girlfriend points out more than once that "change is choice", and that everyone could change for the better, if they wanted to. Jess, Ryan's wife, resolves to be a "better person" if only she could have a second chance and get her husband back.
All of these statements are loose ends that get tied up in the alternate ending, but are completely ignored in the ending the directors and producers chose for this film. This movie is all about seizing second chances, the ability to change, and the readiness to accept the efforts made, but apparently the makers of this picture failed to see that.

My suggestion therefore is: Watch "as is" to see a halfway decent film. But switch to the alternate ending in order to see a great one.

My rating: 3 stars for the unchanged version, but 5 stars for the alternate ending.
