The Possession, 2012.

Directed by Ole Borndeal.

Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Natasha Calis, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport and Matisyahu.


A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl's father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.

The Exorcist has inspired quite a lot of movies over the years and Ole Bornedal’s The Possession is certainly one of the better ones. Produced by Evil Dead maestros Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert, The Possession is “based on the true story” and centres around Clyde and his family who stumble upon the evil of the haunted dybbuk box that contains demon Abizu who possess his daughter Em. While clearly inspired by the William Friedkin classic, its yard sale set-up gives it a 80s era Twilight Zone feel but not played for laughs. »
