Possessions (2004)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
06.14.04

Possessions (2004) POSSESSIONSAuthor: James A. MooreI've enjoyed the majority of the horror novels from Leisure Books but this is the exception. This book really rubbed me the wrong way.Chris Corbin, in his early twenties, wins the multi-million dollar lottery on the same day that his mother is killed in a car crash. This leaves him in charge of his younger sister, Brittany, who is still in high school. Soon someone breaks into their house, searching for something called the Western Key. They have no idea what it is-but it turns out to be this necklace that belonged to the mother, an object that can help open a gateway to another dimension where these demonic creatures live. The book is called POSSESSIONS because many people are duplicated by these other worldly beings, all who are looking for the key. The creatures assume their shape and have their memories while their real bodies are maintained in these living cocoon sacks. If they are in the sacks for too long they get dissolved. This reminded me of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS-and that idea has been done to death.None of the events in the story are really tied together. You'd think that winning the lottery and the mother's death would be linked together somehow, like karma, but it isn't. Then these creatures are looking for the key and possess all these people in order to find it when they could take a more direct route of getting their information. The main characters, Chris and Brittany, are extremely irritating so it's hard to care what happens to them. You want them to be killed just so their clich ęd dialogue would stop.And the ending, when the gate is about to be opened by the creatures, is drawn out way too long so that it becomes boring. This is not a good thing for the climax of the book.Call me a stickler but I like novels where everything is either tied together or satisfyingly ambiguous, a la X-FILES. POSSESSIONS, on the other hand, is a sloppy endeavor all the way around.
