Nope! I still haven’t seen The Possession. But pretty much everyone I know who has seen the Sam Raimi produced/Ole Bornedal directed picture has really dug it, so I’m totally cool plunking down my 12 bucks (wait – I live in LA – 19 bucks) when it hits theaters at the end of the month. Also cool is this pic from Ain’t It Cool news, which keeps with film’s marketing trend of showing awesome stuff without showing too much. It also shows Matisyahu being tackled to the ground, so naturally it appeals to me.
“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.”
