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) and 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.

Based on true events, The Possession is the terrifying story of how one family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil. Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) 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.
