I do have high hopes for cinema in 2012 and I have to say there are 2 films that I am keeping a watch on in particular. A movie called The Possession, release at the end half of this year and The Devil Inside; released in Oz on the 1st of March. Both are possession films. As previously mentioned, in my opinion, 1973’s The Exorcist and 2005’s The Possession of Emily Rose, are the only 2 that hold rank.
I was recently gripping my 3D glasses awaiting the return of a forth instalment of Underworld – see review section – and I saw for the first time the trailer for The Devil Inside. Holy F#ck! This could be a contender. Starring virtually nobody and written by and directed by a relative newcomer, The Devil Inside looks incredibly frightening.
Time will tell of course, but when a new year challenges my theories re possession films, I sit up and listen. Check out the trailer. Could we have a 3rd contender for the scariest concept of all time? F#uck zombies, vampires and werewolves, the idea of possession is truly the scariest concept in horror.
