Inspired by Los Angeles Times writer Leslie Gornstein's article "A Jinx in a Box," this horror film from Ghost House Pictures and director Ole Bornedal (Nightwatch) tells the tale of a broken family that comes under attack from a malevolent supernatural entity of Jewish folklore. Shortly after her parents (Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick) divorce, a young girl purchases an ornate antique box at a yard sale. In the weeks that follow, the young girl forms an intense fixation on the box, her behavior growing increasingly bizarre as she falls into the grip of a diabolical apparition. When the girl's father discovers that the relic is in fact a holding cell for the disconnected soul of a deceased person who has been denied entry into the afterlife and needs a human host to inhabit, he fights to rid her of the evil that threatens to consume her body and soul.

The concept of this movie was fairly new to me, a demon in a box. As far as the creep factor goes, this one is good with several scary scenes. The characters are real and whole. Jeff Morgan does an excelllent job as Clyde, a basketball coach with two daughters going through a divorce.The plot moves pretty smoothly. There are a couple of cheesy moments, like when the demon shoes up on an MRI, but it's not too bad in that regard. The ending has a couple of good twist. Overall, a horror classic.
