A brand-new motion poster for “The Possession” has been released.
The horror movie season that runs from August until October, roughly, is almost upon moviegoers and one of the anticipated frightening (we hope) films is “The Possession”, produced by Sam Raimi and directed by Ole Bornedal (“Watchmen”). Based on a true story, “The Possession” revolves around a family, Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) and their daughters. Em, the youngest daughter, becomes fascinated with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale and soon her behavior becomes cause for alarm. The reason, the box was built to contain a dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that takes control of and devours its human host. If this does not sound frightening enough the posters help the situation.
“The Possession” arrives in theatres on August 31, 2012. Read about the true story that inspired the film in this LA Times article: http://articles.latimes.com/2004/jul/25/entertainment/ca-gornstein25.
