Formerly known as Dibbuk Box comes director Ole Borndedal’s (Deliver Us From Evil) creepy new horror for Lionsgate. Based on a true story, Sam Raimi helps out as a producer through his own Ghost House Productions on this hotly tipped horror which was originally due for release in January.
The first image from the film was revealed recently, and we thought we’d bring that to you as well as the new banner artwork and one-sheet. You can thank Bloody Disgusting for the ultra cool, ultra creepy artwork, which you can see at the top and bottom of this post,
The Possession is directed by Ole Bornedal, and has been written by Kevin Mannis, Stephen Susco, Juliet Snowden andStiles White. The film stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Grant Show, Madison Davenport and Natasha Calis.
The Possession is due for release on 31 August in UK cinemas.
Based on true events, ‘The Possession’ is the terrifying story of how one family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil. Clyde (Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em 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.
