Disturbing First Trailer for The Possession Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick
05.17.12 by BJSprecher
Considering all of the changes that director Ole Bornedal's (Deliver Us from Evil) new horror movie, The Possession, has gone through, one might easily conclude that the movie itself is possessed and not simply the little girl named Em (Natasha Calis) at the heart of the story. The Sam Raimi-produced movie has had its title changed — it used to be called Dibbbuk Box — its rating downgraded from R to PG-13, and even had its release date pushed back nearly eight months to avoid competing with Paramount's possession movie, The Devil Inside. Presumably, there are no more changes on the horizon — for the movie, not the little girl — because Lionsgate has finally released the first disturbing trailer for The Possession.
Here's the synopsis:
Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em (Calis) 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.
The Possession was written by the screenwriting team of Stiles White and Juliet Snowden (Knowing). Grant Show, Madison Davenport and Agam Darshi also star.
