“POSSESSION”— After the Accident


After the Accident

Amos Lassen

Newlyweds Jess (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Ryan (Michael Landes) seem to have it all until a car accident changes everything and renders both Ryan and his brother Roman (Lee Pace) comatose. Things really go out of control when Roman awakens and tries to convince Jess that he is her husband. Beside herself with fear and grief, Jess is filled with fear and grief as she struggles with whether this is actually be the man she lost or if something more sinister is coming.

This is not a thrilling thriller— in fact is quite tedious. Jess had taken her husband for granted and this is probably because his messed-up brother lives with them. Jess used to be Roman’s parole officer, which makes it even more awkward.  When the brothers are involved in a car crash, both of them end up in comas.  While Ryan lay comatose, Roman awakens claiming to be his brother.  Jess is skeptical, but Roman seems to know things only she and Ryan would know. Somehow Ryan’s spirit became mixed up inside Roman’s body, or is Roman (who has a history of abuse) just putting her through mental torture?

Nothing happens for the longest time and I kept waiting, waiting. When it finally comes, it’s tame and it’s hard to care either way if there is some sort of supernatural activity or just head games between the characters.
