The box is real, its curse is legendary.
In Lionsgate’s Possession (formerly Dibbuk Box), 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.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport, and Natasha Calis all star in the supernatural horror opening in theaters on August 31. Check out the first ever image that puts the haunted box on display.
Penned by Juliet Snowden & Stiles White, “A recently divorced father’s (Morgan) youngest daughter becomes strangely connected to an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. As his daughter’s behavior becomes more erratic, the father senses a dark presence building until he discovers that the box was built to contain a dibbuk — a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.“
