A preview for Dibbuk Box . . . I mean The Possession

We've given play to the Sam Raimi produced horror tale The Possession here in The Basement since our run on the radio began. Now we've finally got a look at the movie, which is allegedly based on a true story.

The Ole Bornedal-directed horror film follows Clyde Breneck and his 10-year-old daughter, Em, who purchase an antique box at a yard sale. 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 Possession stars one of my fave actors, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, as Clyde along with long-time hottie Kyra Sedgwick -- who happens to be the wife of Kevin Bacon, whom we featured on the site yesterday. Yes, it's all going according to plan -- as his ex-wife.

I have to admit, I like what I see in the preview below, even if it does look like a lot of other possession movies. There seems to be a degree of quality at work here that many mainstream horror movies don't have. Too bad Lionsgate trimmed it from an R to PG-13. We like R-rated horror here in The Basement.

The Possession rolls into theatre Aug. 31. Cheers to our boys at JoBlo.com for the handy embed.
