Learn about the real Dibbuk Box and the demons of Judaism featured in The Possession

08.23.2012

When it comes to horror movies, the demonic focus usually aims towards Christian ideology or pagan symbols. The world of Jewish mysticism is vastly untapped. Aside from THE UNBORN featuring Gary Oldman as the most badass Rabbi ever (and Odette Yustman in her panties), you don't generally fear us Jews.

Well, Sam Raimi has produced a film that will show you that the Hebrew speaking amongst you can bring the demonology with the best of 'em. He even enlisted the reggae-rapping Orthodox Jew Matisyahu to play the exorcist role in THE POSSESSION. Hell yeah.

This new featurette explores the Dibbuk Box that starts the horrific events featured in THE POSSESSION. Matisyahu and other experts discuss the box and what evil it may contain. Even if you cry bullshit, it is definitely an intriguing story.

THE POSSESSION is based on an LA Times article about the real Dibbuk Box. You can read that full story online and scare yourself shitless.

THE POSSESSION was directed by Ole Bordenal and stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgewick, and Matisyahu. It opens in theaters on August 31st.

I saw the trailer for this before watching Hope Springs (talk about mood whiplash!) and was pretty creeped out. It looks like it will be a better horror film based on Jewish mythology and beliefs as compared to David S. Goyer's The Unborn. That looked positively goofy in parts.

Not bullshit

There is actually a great book called "dibbuk" that accounts actuall stories like this film. A great read but a definitely terrifying one.

I wouldn't cry bullshit

I'd say it over my shoulder as I walked away from this stupid looking boring ass bullshit. It looks ridiculous. I actually laughed involuntarily when I saw the trailer.
