The Possession

The Possession

Directed by Ole Bornedal

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.

A fun watch. In places it was a bit cheesy but I enjoyed this one quite a lot

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.

Excellent and tense possession movie with Hebrew mythology... Nothing too original but still efficient and creepy. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is great, as usual, and the possessed girl is superb.
