A whole lot of the supernatural horror/thrillers that have shown up in the past few years haven’t been terribly inspired; the intersection between budget, ideas and real scares rarely seems to be at the right point.
But The Possession looks like it might be a bit different. Based on an LA Times article called ‘Jinx in a Box‘ and originally titled Dibbuk Box, the film features Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport and Natasha Calis in a story about a young girl who awakens an old evil. The title of the film may be all too generic, but the trailer actually looks quite creepy. And I’ll say this: it’s got a pretty great kicker shot.
Yahoo has the trailer. The Possession opens on August 31.
