This review is from: The Possession [DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet] (DVD)
I watch a lot of horror movies. Have for years. I was feeling numb to them but this one got me! Actually turned on the lights. Really great twists. This is not an Exorcist rip off. This one is based on old Jewish mythology of the dibbuk. A human who is so evil they are condemned to live as deamons for all time. The DVD includes the story behind the story and it is facinating.
I cannot say I have seen many movies that feature religious Jews. I am not Jewish so I am not exactly looking for them. This one introduces a Jewish exorcism which is not like the catholic one at all. I was facinated by that. A glimpse into a world I never see,
I have never seen a horror movie where a religious Jew was the hero.

You should check out "The Hebrew Hammer" for religious Jewish hero. He kills it. Haha.

The Unborn also falls into this category of Jewish hero and mythology. A pretty good film actually
