Zak Bagans Acquires the Infamous Dibbuk Box for Haunted Museum
If you’re a fan of the paranormal, you should be well aware of the “dibbuk box” that gained infamy from a 2004 story in the Los Angeles Times. It went on to spawn the movie The Possession, and now it’s been acquired by one of the most famous names in the haunted memorabilia biz: Zak Bagans, who plans to add the box to his Haunted Museum.
Per TMZ, Zak bought the wine cabinet allegedly haunted by a dibbuk (or dybbuk) from the guys who lent its evil backstory to the 2012 horror film. “Dybbuk” literally means “an attachment, a cleaving to something”; a dybbuk is thought to be the spirit of a person who, instead of drifting into the next realm, sticks around and enters the bodies of living people.
This particular item is commonly known as the “world’s most haunted object,” which explains why Zak reportedly paid tens of thousands of dollars for it. However, don’t expect to see it opened up for the public when touring his Las Vegas-based Haunted Museum. According to TMZ, he’s genuinely too terrified to do that. But if you’re brave enough – and over 18 – you’ll be able to sign a waiver to view it.
Zak’s massive Haunted Museum, set to open soon, will also hold such oddities as an actual mummy, Peggy the Doll, Michael Jackson’s death scene chair, Ed Gein’s cauldron, Dr. Jack Kervorkian’s van, a throng of working antique mechanical dolls, and much more.
