Preview Screening yo!
Thanks to nuffnang!

The Possession
What say u?!
Watching this type of movie during the 7th month of the Lunar Calendar is no good! =S like serious no good!
Worse part is, it's based on true story!
The whole movie was pretty real (cause it is REAL), and it was damn good the scare you off! Trust me! =S
Rating....7 out of 10 SCARINESS!

Check out the synopsis below
The Possession
In the opening of the film a woman tries to open a strange box, attempting to protect herself with holy water and a hammer. She starts being thrown violently around the room and having seizures. When her son enters, she is unconscious on the floor.

Next we are introduced to couple Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) who are in the process of divorce, which is having an effect on their children, Em (Natasha Calis), and Hannah, (Madison Davenport). When the children move into Clyde's new house, they take time to adjust to the new split in their lives.

The next day, they stop by at a yard sale, initially to buy more dishes, but then Em becomes intrigued by an old box which has Hebrew inscriptions engraved on it. The box fascinates Em, and she asks her father if she can have it. Clyde agrees while he is talking on the phone. Clyde is busy with his ongoing job at the local university.

They hear an animalistic noise in their kitchen one night, but when the intruder escapes through their dog flap, Clyde assumes it was a raccoon.

Em becomes solitary and spends all her spare time staring at the box. Em's behavior increasingly grows more sinister, with Clyde and Hannah freaking out when they see her sitting in her room surrounded by moths one night.

Stephanie, Clyde's divorced wife, spends time with her new boyfriend, Brett (Grant Show), an orthodontist. Stephanie assumes the crowd of moths were attracted to the pizza they had for dinner, of which she disapproves. Em's behavior gradually grows more violent. When she strikes out at a schoolmate who was trying to steal her box, she is brought to the attention of the authorities, who recommend that she spend time away from the box which has fixated her so greatly. Unfortunately, her teacher marking grades that night dies when a malevolent force throws her rapidly around the room and beats her to death before throwing her out the window.

In a diner, Em tells Clyde about a woman who lives in her box who says Em is "special." Her father is alarmed by her eating behavior. Em has notably changed. She eats voraciously. Em also tells Clyde that "she's still hungry." The entity is slowly taking over Emily. Clyde attempts to dispose of the old box by throwing it in a garbage unit, but Em races from her house late at night to get the box. She seems to become totally possessed by the entity at this time.

Clyde, immensely disturbed, takes the box to a professor at the university. The professor tells him the box dates back to the 1820s and was used to contain a broken spirit, an ancient Jewish evil or demon, and the box is a Dybbuk box. When a demon got too much to handle the Jews contained it in a box and sealed the box to prevent anyone opening it.

Clyde immediately travels to the local Hasidic community, and learns from a Jew named Tzadok (Matisyahu) that the possession has three main stages, with the third stage being the one where the Dybbuk latches onto the host, becoming one entity with it. The only way to defeat the Dybbuk is to lock it back into the box in a forced ritual, for which the demon's name is needed. Returning from New York City, Tzadok breaks the mirror inside the box and discovers it is named Abizo.

At home, Em violently attacks her mother when Stephanie discovers her eating like an animal out of the refrigerator. The Dybbuk tries to kill Stephanie but is stopped. Em has no recollection of this attack. Stephanie reunites with Clyde to have an MRI scan on Em. Stephanie is horrified when she sees the Dybbuk's face inside Em's skeleton, near the heart.

Stephanie realizes Em is possessed. Tzadok and the family and rush to a deserted rehab room in the hospital to conduct an exorcism. The Dybbuk proves too powerful to handle and escapes, with Em rushing down the corridors and Clyde following. Em beats Clyde seemingly to death. He survives but now is possessed by the Dybbuk. Tzadok performs an exorcism which is successful, with the Dybbuk crawling out of Clyde and back into the box, which slams shut.

Em, fine now, is reunited with her family, who thank Tzadok as he departs. He drives his vehicle to put the box somewhere safe. However, his car is hit by a truck, killing him. The Dybbuk box is unharmed, with the demon still inside.
