The Silver Bullet ~ The Possession

Synopsis: A young girl 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.

Release Date:  August 31, 2012

Thoughts: Yeah, yeah, I know that you’re tired of spooky possession movies (see the trailers for Sinister and The Apparition).  To some extent, I am too and yet I find myself looking forward to these scare-fests as the fall rolls around.  Arriving right at the end of the summer months, The Possession has a strong producer credit going for it which does catch my interest.  That credit is Sam Raimi and if the guy that made The Evil Dead and Drag Me to Hell is involved…consider me on board.  Another strong selling point is director Ole Bornedal, a Danish director who has never quite caught on in the US though he delivered the spooky Nightwatch in 1994 and it’s US remake in 1997.
