Today seems like the day for horror flicks. We just saw the wild and crazy trailer for the shark-in-a-grocery-store flick ‘Bait 3D’. And now we have a different type of horror in the Sam Raimi produced thriller aptly named ‘Possession’.

‘Possession’ is based on a true story about a girl who purchases a wooden box off of eBay and ends up getting more than she bargained for. Here’s the official synopsis of the flick:

Clyde and Stephanie Brenek 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.

Here’s the uber-creepy trailer…


‘Possession’ stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan (‘The Watchmen’), Kyra Sedgwick (‘The Closer’), and Madison Davenport (‘Shameless’) and is directed by Ole Bornedal (‘Nightwatch’) from a script by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White (both of ‘Boogeyman’ fame). It crawls into theaters on August 31st.
