A Look at ‘The Possession’ and its Curse

Lionsgate release a great looking hi-res photo for their upcoming horror film, The Possession (formerly Dibbuk Box). The award-winning director Ole Bornedal has been given the reigns to directing this horrible tale of a haunted box that unleashes a terrible nightmare on a family who unsuspectingly brings the cursed box home.

The film is in the vein of The Exorcist because it is based on real events that came about after a family wound up in possession of a cursed box, setting off an agonizing struggle to rid themselves of its curse. This real-life box became popular in 2004 when it sold on eBay after causing baffling bad fortune to its owners, which was credited to a dibbuk – a malevolent spirit of Jewish folklore trapped in the haunted box.

Written by Juliet Snowden & Stiles White, The Possession is about a young girl who buys an antique box at a yard sale who is totally unaware that inside lives a malicious ancient spirit. Her father teams up with ex-wife to find a way to rid the curse that has taken over their child.

The film does sound a bit “been there done that” but the whole backstory of this being based on an unexplainable event which involved a cursed box is very intriguing and if the film is done right, it might just make you think twice about going to a garage sale.

Expect the film to hit theaters on August 31.
