The Possession

Fear The Demon That Doesn't Fear God
  • I want a better exocist!

Allegedly based on a true story, this is in essence a Jewish version of The Exorcist. An estranged couple see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as her behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst, only to discover that the box was built to contain a dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host. The parents eventually call in the experts who attempt to exorcise the spirit from the girl.
