The Possession is due to arrive in UK cinemas this Friday, and the big question after a long hot (yeah right) summer of non horror flicks is this, will fans get their horror fix, and will it be scary? Well, on the evidence of these two clips, we just might be in for a treat.
While no film about a possessed individual will EVER grace the heights of The Exorcist, many have come and had a jolly good go at it. Director Ole Bornedal appears no different, and while every possessed girl cliche appears to be used here, the sudden jolts of horror work very well indeed. Check out the clips at the bottom of this post.

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.
