The horror hit of the summer, The Possession, produced by celebrated horror filmmaker Sam Raimi (Drag Me To HellEvil Dead), along with Robert Tapert (Drag Me to Hell) and J.R. Young (The Messengers) arrives on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), DVD (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), Digital Download and On Demand on January 15th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Headlined by Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen) and Golden Globe® winner Kyra Sedgwick (TV's "The Closer"), the supernatural thriller is directed by Ole Bornedal (Nightwatch), and written by Juliet Snowden (Boogeyman) & Stiles White (Knowing). The chilling tale is based on a true story and co-stars Natasha Calis (TV's "The Firm") as a young girl whose body has been taken over by a murderous evil spirit.

Clyde (Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em (Calis) becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Em's behavior 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.
