Featurette for The Possession explains what a Dibbuk is

We first reported on the upcoming horror flick The Possession waaaaaayyyy back at the start of Season Two of our show. Back then the Ole Bornedal directed film was called Dibbuk Box, which refers to the item in which the evil spirit of the story is held.

Right or wrong, the folks over at Lionsgate decided no one would get what the deuce a Dibbuk Box is and changed the title to the far more generic, but easier to market, The Possession. The film opens next Friday.

However, the Dibbuk is still a big part of the movie, so the marketing arm at Lionsgate put together this featurette to explain what the hell it is. And we've embedded it below to better inform Basement Dwellers. Remember, knowing is half the battle.

The Possession follows a young girl who buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl's father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.
