‘The Possession’: A new horror film with a dybbuk — and Matisyahu


The sick mind of Sam Raimi is at it again.

Raimi, who directed the “Evil Dead” series, “Drag Me to Hell” and the “Spiderman” movies, is producing a new exorcism movie this summer titled “The Possession.” Opening August 31, the movie tells the true story of a family who must unite when their daughter is taken over by a dybbuk, or a dislocated spirit that inhabits and devours its human host. Sounds creepy.

The possibly weirdest part of the movie is the presence in the cast of Matisyahu, who plays a minor role.

See the trailer below, but be warned: This trailer is not for those with a weak stomach.
