About The Possession
A young girl and her family are terrorised by the threat of possession in this horror produced by Sam Raimi. Em (Natasha Calis) buys an old wooden box when she's at a garage sale with her father Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). She becomes increasingly attached to it, but Clyde and his ex-wife Stephanie (Kyra Sedgwick) just think that she's being childishly dramatic. However, her increasingly erratic behaviour and several horrific, unexplainable occurrences make Clyde realise that the box contains a dibbuk or evil spirit. And the dibbuk won't rest until it takes over Em completely. Fright master Rami's seal of approval on a film usually means some solid scares and striking visuals, and the unsettling instances where the evil invades Em provide more than enough nightmare fodder.
