The new supernatural horror “The Possession” opens in AMC Theatres this weekend – purchase your tickets HERE.
We had the opportunity to attend the red carpet for the film where we spoke with producer Sam Raimi, director Ole Borendal, stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick and Natasha Calis as well as Jason Haxton, the man who owns the box the story in film was based on, about the appeal of exorcism/possession tales and what makes this movie, in particular, so terrifying.
Take a look at the video 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.
“The Possession” opens in AMC Theatres this Friday, August 31st – purchase your tickets HERE.
