The Possession is scheduled to hit theaters this upcoming August 31, 2012 and I am stoked. In the past most demon possession movies have been a little “not so good” but I think this one may make up for it. Ole Bornedal directs and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport and Natasha Calis stars.
The Possession is the terrifying story of how one family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil. Clyde (Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (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.
Directed by Ole Bornedal
Official Synopsis: The basketball coach Clyde and his wife Stephanie divorced a couple of months ago and their teenage daughter Hannah and the girl Emily 'Em' live with their mother and spend the weekends with their father. One day, Clyde stops his car in a yard sale and Em buys an antique carved box and becomes obsessed with it. Em finds the hidden lock and releases an evil spirit that possesses her. Soon Clyde discovers that Em has a problem, but his annoying ex-wife and her boyfriend Brett do not pay attention to him and get a restraining order against Clyde. Clyde seeks out Professor McMannis and when he sees the box, he explains that it is a Dibbuk Box, where a fiend is trapped inside. He also explains that the box should not be open; otherwise the person will be possessed by the spirit. Now Clyde travels to a Jewish community in New York and the rabbi's son Tzadok returns with him expecting to exorcise Em to save the girl.Cast: Chris Shields, Ned Bellamy, Steve Saunders, Jay Brazeau, Marilyn Norry, Rob LaBelle, Amanda Dyar, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Agam Darshi, Charles…
