The Possession

The Possession

Directed by Ole Bornedal

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.

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.

It was nice to see a Jewish angle on this kind of genre. A little slow but it's a fun film.

Kind of like Drag Me to Hell but Jewish and with less CGI. Entertaining if not unique or compelling storytelling, so it's worth a watch if you go in with no expectations. Wasn't a fan of the abusive father setup though, it's tired and unnecessary. Overall a 6/10 for me.
