The Possession is based on a true story about a family that must unite to overcome an unspeakable evil. We have the official poster and first photo. The true story that inspired the movie was based on a small wooden box that was sold on EBay containing two locks of hair, one granite slab, one dried rosebud, one goblet, two wheat pennies, one candlestick and, allegedly, one “dibbuk,” a kind of spirit popular in Yiddish folklore. This was posted in the Los Angeles Times July 25, 2004, click the link for more information.
Based on a true story, THE POSSESSION is the terrifying story of how one family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil.
Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Em’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst, only to discover that the box was built to contain a dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.
Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan (WATCHMEN) and Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer"), THE POSSESSION is directed by Ole Bornedal (NIGHTWATCH), written by Juliet Snowden & Stile. s White, and produced by horror master Sam Raimi along with Rob Tapert and J.R. Young. Lionsgate and Ghost House Pictures present.
