The Possession (REVIEW)

"The Possession" is an exorcism film in the vein of the grandaddy of them all, "The Exorcist", one that proudly wears its 70's roots on its sleeve. Helmed by "Nightwatch" (1997) director Ole Bornedal, "The Possession" stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan as a single father, doing his best to deal with his career as a basketball coach, while trying to maintain a relationship with his two young daughters, whom he has custody of on the weekends. This task is made harder by his relationship with his wife, whom was clearly the one who ended things.

Every day I look on the tubes for news that's going to grab you by the lips and yank. Some days that task is pretty hard. Today is not one of those days. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you a very NSFW clip of from "Drive Angry" where Nic Cage is having sex with a women while having a gunfight. I don't want to say you should skip the rest of the news but I'd be lying if I said it wasn't going to go downhill after this.

Because "Piranha 3D" is hitting DVD and Blu-Ray and that gives us a reason to continue being pervs, the makers recently held an online "Hottest Babes in Horror" showdown on their site. The winner? One Miss Eliza Dushku. The losers? A porn stay way past her prime, a girl I think is someone but if I'm wrong I sound really racist and a bunch of other people I don't recognized. So yeah, congrats.

Michael Tully is a director and he's created a movie called "Septien" that has the greatest movie poster I've seen this year. No there isn't anyone nude on it, sometimes I can be classy to you know. The movie focuses on a gambler who returns home after being away for years to reconnect with his insane brothers. Side note, I have no idea how to pronounce the title of this film.

"Dibbuk Box", which sounds like a Japanese prono, has added Kyra Sedgwick to it's ever growing cast list. From Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures, the movie follows the story of a young boy who becomes strangely attracted to a wooden box that contains a soul chomping demon. Sedgwick will play the unlucky tike's mother.

In Real People News: 

Nothing ruins a day of fun like losing your grip on the inflatable sex doll that you're floating down a river on. Luckily these Australian teens were rescued after the mishap and all is now well again. From the photo I think the sex doll made it out OK too, so happy times all around.

Cops ruin everything, fact. Here's a story of a guy who was playfully running around a highway completely naked after getting all wacky on LSD and booze and then the cops had to come along and taser him, three times. On second thought that sounds really awesome and the only bad part is that it wasn't captured on film.

Danish filmmaker Ole Bornedal is confirmed to be directing the Sam Raimi produced film "Dibbuk Box". The movie is apparently based on real life events that happened to a family who came into possession of a haunted box. I'm not sure how big the box was but one possible solution could have been to just throw it out. I'm just tossing out ideas here though.

Wait there's a remake of "The Crow" in the works? Why didn't anyone tell me about this? Time to bust out my skin tight leather pants! I hope they still fit, it's been over 15 years. Oh and Stephen Norrington, the director who was attached to it said he's left the project. But still, "The Crow" remake!

Now I'm going to address the fine people behind "The Frankenstein Syndrome" When you cast Tiffany Shepis in your movie I have some expectations of what I'm going to see. I'm not going to say what those things are but you take a look at these new stills from the film and try to guess. Here's a hint, it isn't a creepy mask covering up her face... or a creepy shirt.

Don Coscarelli, the guy who brought us "Phantasm" and "Bubba Ho-Tep", has officially been tapped to direct David Wong's "John Dies at the End". The cast right now also includes Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown, Angus Scrimm, Chase Williamson, and Rob Mayes. I assume one of them will play someone named "John" who will most likely die at the end of the movie.

In Real People News: 

If this doesn't warm your heart I don't know what will. A 5 year old boy in Syria has become engaged to a 3 year old girl. I have no idea how or why something like that could be legal in any country, but that doesn't make it any less adorable.
