New THE POSSESSION Featurette Delves Into The Lore

By AMC August 24, 2012

A new feature for the upcoming chiller “The Possession” explores the lore behind the tale.

If you’ve heard of the malevolent spirit known as a dibbuk then you may learn a bit more about them. If not, prepare to be enlightened in the featurette below.


Based on a true story, “The Possession” is the terrifying story of how one family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil.

Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra 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. 

Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“Watchmen”) and Kyra Sedgwick (“The Closer”), “The Possession” is directed by Ole Bornedal (“Nightwatch”), written by Juliet Snowden & Stiles White, and produced by horror master Sam Raimi.

Look for “The Possession” in AMC Theatres on August 31st.
