| Entertaining, but nothing special
Possession is one of the best films in actress Sarah Michelle Gellar's filmography...something which does not represent too much flattery.As I have mentioned in other occasions, I was a huge fan of the TV series Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and I think that Gellar brought a brilliant performance in there.However, most of the films Gellar has been involved in are bad, and she was absolutely wasted in many of them.However, Possession kept me entertained, despite the facts that is not very memorable and that it feels a bit bland.

The story from Possession is not very original; nevertheless, I liked the performances, the atmosphere and the methodic path the screenplay takes until leading to the "tense" ending, which is not very tense by itself, but which seems so thanks to the solid works from Gellar and Lee Pace.

In conclusion, I think Possession deserves a moderate recommendation, mainly because of the performances, Joel Bergvall's and Simon Sanquist's efficient direction, and the screenplay, which does not offer too many new things, but at least is well structured.In other words, Possession is competent, but it lacks of something special to make it memorable.
