The Flick: The Possession
The Skinny: Ole Bornedal (Deliver Us from Evil) directed this Sam Raimi-produced movie, originally titled Dibbick Box. In Jewish folklore, a dibbick box is a wine cabinet containing various ceremonial items that acts as a sort of prison for malicious spirits. The movie is based upon a real life dibbick box that became famous when a man named Kevin Mannis bought one at an estate sale and then tried to sell it on eBay after he supposedly freed the spirit inside.
The Players: Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick star as Clyde and Stephanie Brenek, parents of a young girl named Em (Natasha Calis) who becomes possessed by a malevolent spirit after purchasing an antique wooden box at a yard sale. Grant Show, Madison Davenport and Agam Darshi also star.
