I’m a huge fan of possession films, so when I first heard about the trailer for The Last Possession, I knew I had to check it out. Admittedly, it didn’t sound like a super original take on the subgenre, but I don’t need every movie I see to reinvent the wheel. As long as it’s a solid film that brings the scares I’ll be happy, and if this trailer is any indication, The Last Possession is going to be exactly that.
The movie is about a family that’s fallen on hard times so they have to move into the father’s childhood home. Soon after they arrive they begin to experience strange events, and when they turn to a medium for help, they realize that the entity in their house is much more menacing than they imagined.
Right from the first scene, this trailer had me hooked. It starts out innocently enough with a little girl telling her mom she’s playing with her grandpa, but when the girl says she knows her grandpa is dead, the mood takes a very sinister and foreboding turn. It lets you know without a doubt that this family is going to encounter true evil in its purest form, and I can’t wait to learn how exactly this plays out.
From there, the trailer for The Last Possession slowly raises new questions (like what the hell is that hole??!!) and amps up the tension bit by bit, and it ends with a fun montage of scares that makes me think this movie is going to be exactly what I’m looking for.
Admittedly, I won’t know for sure until I actually get to see the film, and thankfully, we’ll all be getting that chance very soon. The Last Possession debuts on the Terror Films YouTube channel on March 4 before hitting VOD platforms on March 11, and if it’s as good as the trailer suggests, we’re in for a worthy new addition to the time-honored possession subgenre.
