The Possession Featurette: What is a Dibbuk?

There's a new featurette from The Possession that explains the folklore and the history of the dibbuk. Take a look:

The Possession stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick as a couple whose daughter Em becomes possessed after buying an old box at a yard sale.

Sam Raimi (Oz: The Great and Powerful) produced the film, which was directed by Ole Bornedal.

The Possession premieres August 31. For a preview of the film, watch this Possession clip released earlier this month.
