Plot details revealed for Lionsgate's Dibbuk Box

Last week we wrote on this blog that Lionsgate's next big (they hope) Halloween horror franchise Dibbuk Box would go toe-to-toe with Paranormal Activity 3 but made no mention of what it was about. That's because no one was really sure of the plot, or what a dibbuk box actually is.

Some plot details are starting to emerge, as is word that the film is based on true events. Which, in Hollywood speak, means dibbuk boxes are real. And they are. A dibbuk box is a wine cabinet.

The folks over at Blood Disgusting are reporting that the Ole Bornedal-directed horror film will follow Clyde Breneck and his 10-year-old daughter, Em, who purchase the antique box at a yard sale (apparently, in the real-life story, it was bought on Ebay). Em accidentally releases an ancient spirit from the box that wants to devour her. Clyde must team up with his ex-wife to put an end to the curse.

The story sounds more BS to me than most of the stuff on Fox News. But it does have some potential as a horror film. Given the number of horror movies based on true events one would think ghosts and goblins are running rampant in the streets. Maybe it's a big government cover up? Nah. The government would never cover anything up.

And, just to satiate your curiosity, here's a link to the alleged true story! We aim to entertain and inform here in The Basement.

Penned by Juliet Snowden & Stiles White, Lionsgate wants this in theaters by Oct. 28, 2011.
