The MPAA’s rating appeals board has upheld the “R” rating given to Lionsgate’s horror-thriller The Possession (formerly Dibbuk Box), the Sam Raimi Ghost House Pictures-produced supernatural horror starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport, and Natasha Calis.
The Classification and Rating Administration had assigned the movie an R for “violence, terror, and disturbing images” in October, prompting the minimajor to appeal.
Directed by Ole Bornedal, it will arrive in theaters August 31, 2012, a far cry from the original January 6 date.
“Morgan will star as a recently divorced father whose 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.“
