The Possession (2012)

Plot: "A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl's father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child." (courtesy of 

Now, possession movies are something that have been done to death. But this was definitely a different take on the whole possession issue. It wasn't really that scary to me but, it was intriguing. You get a look at the Jewish faith and their folklore. The fact that it's based loosely off of a true story, makes it that more intriguing. This movie made me more interested into looking into what this movie is based off of. Look into it, whether you believe it's true or not, it is an interesting read and watch. 

All in all, I found this movie interesting. If you're looking for a good ole fashion possession story, this isn't it. Give it a shot, I think you might like it.


House At The End Of The Street (2012)

Plot: "A mother and daughter move to a new town and find themselves living next door to a house where a young girl murdered her parents. When the dait.ughter befriends the surviving son, she learns the story is far from over." (courtesy of 

So here is what I thought. I didn't really like it. I didn't find it scary at all. It was so predictable that I knew the "twist" way before it was going to happen. I knew what was going to happen way before it actually did. And of course, that makes for no scare factor what so ever. This movie is something that has been done time and time again. I was really thinking 'Disturbia' throughout this entire movie ( though I do love 'Disturbia'). The only good thing I found about this movie was Jennifer Lawerence. I kind of love that girl.  

Typical horror movie. Predictable plot. Just when you start to feel sorry, you'll be sadly mistaken.  

So in conclusion, the two of us suggest that you save your money. This movie just isn't worth it. If you really feel that urge to watch it, I'm sure you can find other ways to do so. Plus, you'll be saved the aggravation of unnecessary screaming and yelling you'll probable expierence in the theaters.
