  • Inspired by Los Angeles Times writer Leslie Gornstein's article "A Jinx in a Box," this horror film from Ghost House Pictures and director Ole Bornedal (NIGHTWATCH) tells the tale of a broken family that comes under attack from a malevolent supernatural entity of Jewish folklore. Shortly after her parents (Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick) divorce, a young girl purchases an ornate antique box at a yard sale. In the weeks that follow, the young girl forms an intense fixation on the box, her behavior growing increasingly bizarre as she falls into the grip of a diabolical apparition. When the girl's father discovers that the relic is in fact a holding cell for the disconnected soul of a deceased person who has been denied entry into the afterlife and needs a human host to inhabit, he fights to rid her of the evil that threatens to consume her body and soul.

  • Critic Reviews
    "A better-than-most fright-time tale....The film is the sort of classically minded horror tale that Raimi in particular seems to favor."
    Los Angeles Times

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "THE POSSESSION is a serious horror film about supernatural possession that depends on more than loud noises to scare us."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "With an incredible performance by young Natasha Calls and surprisingly effect direction by Ole Bornedal you'll be surprised how this horror gets you just when you think you're safe."
    Box Office

    "THE POSSESSION is produced bySam Raimi, and, at its best, has some of the throwback appeal of Raimi's last theatrical release,DRAG ME TO HELL."

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film benefits from strong dialogue, pacing and performances..."
