I’m still totally stoked to see The Possession. Most of my colleagues have had a chance to check it out and most of them really dug it. I could definitely uses a fix of Raimi-inspired chaos. That being said, these new pics from Entertainment Weekly don’t offer much that we haven’t seen in the film’s trailers. But that’s okay!!! We don’t need everything spoiled before release, do we? I’m kind of glad this movie seems to be keeping some of its bigger moments close to the vest.
“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.”
Head inside to check out the pics! The Possession haunts theaters on August 31st.
