Lionsgate Claims October 2011 Date for ‘Dibbuk Box’

Now that Lionsgate’s Saw franchise has come to an end, they can no longer claim that October is their month — or can they? The studio has quickly jumped to declare Halloween weekend 2011 theirs as the Sam Raimi-produced Dibbuk Box will arrive in theaters on October 28, 2011. Award-winning Ole Bornedal directs the tale of the horrific nightmare unleashed on one family who unwittingly brings a cursed box into their home. The real-life box gained notoriety in 2004 when it sold on eBay after causing inexplicable bad fortune to its owners which were attributed to a dibbuk – a malevolent spirit of Jewish folklore trapped in the haunted box. The box is real, its curse is legendary. This I can attest to as I followed the events of the box live over the course of a year (or so).
