Best Human Possession Horror Movies

heather
Possession, one of the scariest genres of horror. Whether it's because you can't control it, or if you believe that it could really happen, this is one of the most terrifying horror genres to ever hit the silver screen. Another facet of the fear of this genre is that so many are "based on a true story"... This List is for the possession of humans, not houses, hotels, etc.

The Top TenXW

1The Exorcist

The best possession movie ever... Period! Poor acting and storyline? Wow, what movie were you watching? I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Still the scariest movie ever! Scared me so bad as a child that I was 40 before I got the nerve to watch the whole movie. No other movie has ever come close!

This is number 1. The most harrowing film I've watched. Never seen a possession movie that came close.

The atmosphere was incredibly heavy, this movie was and is still a masterpiece!

2The Possession

This film is incredibly creepy.. For some reason the thought of a demon that pre-dates Christianity seems more malignant, and more powerful. This was a great film, well acted, well scripted, and well executed. - heather

This film was Excellent! Jeffery Dean Morgan did a Great job as expected, as did the girl playing Emily. That little girl creeped me out!

This movie is an example of Human Possession taken to the extreme! - jerk4life

A real hidden gem!

3Insidious

Not scary! I watched the whole movie by myself at night by MYSELF. I am 10!

This falls as my third favourite horror movie

4The Rite

Based on a true story, this movie has a fantastic location, cast, and story. This film shows us that no one is safe, and just because you don't believe in the devil, doesn't mean he's not there. - heather

Definitely one of the scariest movies of all time. The only film that got me screaming!
