The Possession

 (2012)

The Possession Blu-ray despite great video and superb audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick star in this supernatural horror film produced by Sam Raimi. Shortly after the divorce of her parents (Morgan and Sedgwick), teenager Em (Natasha Calis) buys an elaborately carved antique box at a yard sale. As her behaviour grows increasingly bizarre in the weeks that follow, her father is forced to seek out the help of his ex-wife in a desperate attempt to end the curse that appears to be consuming the body and soul of their daughter.

For more about The Possession and the The Possession Blu-ray release, see the The Possession Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Natasha Calis, Madison Davenport, Grant Show, Quinn Lord
Director: Ole Bornedal

The Possession Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Possession is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.41:1. This is an intentionally desaturated looking film for the bulk of its running time, with an emphasis on Vancouver, B.C.'s brooding gray skies and kind of monochromatic mien. Therefore, very little really pops in terms of color or palette throughout the film. That said, the image here is very crisp and well defined, unless it's specifically designed not to be, as in a climactic scene in a red hued morgue. Close-ups reveal abundant fine detail and there are no real stability issues to report. Shadow detail remains fairly strong even in the many dimly lit interior scenes.


The Possession Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Possession features a reasonably aggressive lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that relies on just about every sonic cliché you've come to expect from a film like this. Some of these undeniably provoke a startle effect (there's one at the beginning of the film, when the elderly owner of the "dibbuk box" approaches it, and an even bigger one in a horrifying scene at the film's end that I won't spoil here). Surround activity actually tends to be more effective in some of the relatively more quiet scenes, like when Dad and the girls return to their home to discover what looks like an intruder has been in the house (it's left unclear whether or not it's a raccoon or the nefarious "dibbuk"). Director Ole Bornedal evidently fell in love with the music of Estonian composer Arvo Part and had the film's composer Anton Sanko ape some of Part's compositions, so there are some moody piano cues that sound great.
