It doesn’t happen everyday, but when it does it’s glorious. Just saw this trailer on Collider for Possession starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Watchmen) Kyra Sedgewick (The Closer) and Madison Davenport and the effects floored me. The creators behind this baby are bringing some fresh ideas “visually”, we can only hope the same applies to the script. The story is produced by Sam Raimi and directed by Ole Burndale (Nightwatch). The story is based on the old Jewish folklore about The Dibbuk Box a wine box, that was sold on ebay, that legend says contains an evil spirit. That’s where it get’s hazy and I’m sure liberties were taken, but all in all the spirit in the box does a lot of bad things…which brings us to our film.
Synopsis: A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl’s father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.
The Possession releases in theaters August 31st. By the way that poster is Rick-fucking-diculous!!
