When their youngest daughter, Em (Natasha Calis), becomes strangely obsessed with an antique wooden box bought from a yard sale, parents Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie (Kyra Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm. However, Em becomes increasingly unstable, leading the couple to fear the presence of a malevolent force. To their horror, Clyde and Stephanie learn that the box contains a dybbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits -- and ultimately devours -- a human host.

40 years later and Hollywood is still just riffing on "The Exorcist." This time, the twist is the substitution of Judaism for Christianity (and Jewish rapper Matisyahu for the great Max von Sydow).
If originality were its only problem, "The Possession" might still be a fun rental, but it also suffers from major pacing issues throughout and -- as is typical of the genre -- bland characters who behave in absolutely ridiculous ways. If you've seen the trailers, you've already watched best parts.March 1st, 2013 · Details1 Thank ·
