Clyde and Stephanie Brenek see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em 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.

A very spooky horror movie. Also interestingly enough a family drama-suspense as Jeffrey Dean Morgan's character pulls out all stops to save his daughter.

Good movie. Do not skip the Special Features of the DVD where they talk about the actual box.

Meh. Not bad.

a decent by-the-numbers possession movie. Some of the relationship between husband & wife wasn't that believable, but otherwise I found it was solid, entertaining and not all that scary.

I enjoyed this much more than I expected based on the reviews. It's not going to reinvent the genre, but it's a solid enough movie. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is terrific.

This DVD movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Wasn't bad not to scary more real creepy but defiantly worth a watch

One of the better "possession" films out there and has it's moments. Like many horror films these days, it relies on the true and tried "jump scare" formula to garner it's audience. Still from what I saw, it's well acted and worth a look.

I liked this movie. I had seen another movie ("Kill Katie Malone") based on the same story about a month earlier, told from the college kid who bought the box on ebay. This one was far better and if you really want to install some fear, watch the special features, THAT is far scarier than most "horror movies" nowadays.
