Best "Possession" Flicks
I was inspired by the poll on the JoBlo mainpage to start this Thread! So what are they!? My vote has to go with William Peter Blattey's The Exorcist, with The Omen films and The Exorcist III: Legion coming in close second(s)! Personally, I don't count the Evil Dead films as "possession" criteria because it isn't focused on the possessions but Ash's exploits, nor is it based off of Catholic or Jewish philosophies but is really just a slaughterfest. (But hey, I'm not complaining!)

So hit us all up with your favourite possession flicks!

My personal faves:

1. The Exorcist - Of course.

2. Ghostbusters - The more humorous side of possession

3. Paranormal Activity

4. Session 9

5. Noroi: The Curse

Ghostbusters is an interesting choice, even though I would personally put it in the Evil Dead camp (or should I say "cabin"?) where I wouldn't personally consider it of the genre in how it portrays possession.
