Watch: A Haunting Trailer for Demonic Horror Film 'The Possession'
What's that? You haven't had enough of demon possession of children in horror films? Well, then you're in luck! The trailer for Ole Bornedal's new film The Possession from producer Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures production banner has arrived. Normally films like this look so generic, but there's some pretty freaky imagery and epic music that somehow has this particular demonic horror thriller grabbing my attention. The presence of Jeffrey Dean Morgan certainly helps, but I think there's a bit of the same tone that made Drag Me to Hell so captivating and satisfying. Judge for yourself by watching the trailer below!
Here's the first official trailer for Ole Bornedal's The Possession, originally via Yahoo:
Ole Bornedal directs The Possession based on a Los Angeles Times article called "Jinx in a Box" with writers Juliet Snowden and Stiles White (Boogeyman and Knowing) adapting the story. Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their daughter Em becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Em's behavior becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst and soon learn a dislocated spirit is inhabiting their daughter. Lionsgate is sending The Possession to theaters August 31st.
