Jews and a Demon

One true story.

One movie.

One Matisyahu.

One dybbuk box (?), with a history.

A few taleisim.

Some hassidim.

...a dybbuk box appearing for sale on eBay sparked a mainstream interest into the mythology and history of possession in Jewish lore. Several years ago, Sam Raimi’s team of researchers heard about the events, we have mapped out, and began the long, winding journey to make a film about them.


If you’re truly craving a horror movie this weekend, The Possession will be your best bet and is worth a viewing.  Be warned, though…you’ll probably laugh more than you’ll shriek.
Screen snaps from here.
