Any long time reader of BackwoodsHorror knows that we’re just crazy about squatchsploitation/sasquatch/bigfoot flicks. From seeing 1980?s NIGHT OF THE DEMON, CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE,  and LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK as a child, onto newer fare such as THE LOST COAST TAPES and the much anticipated EXISTS,and Bobcat Goldthwait’s WILLOW CREEK, we just can’t get enough of the big furry guy. Bigfoot, Skunk Ape, or Sasquatch – whatever you want to call the big fella, the creature has made one hell of an impression on us!

And now, Lionsgate Home Entertainment is throwing their (big)foot in the ring with the upcoming November 19th release of the new Sasquatch horror film PRIMITIVE. This time, however, it seems as though they’re taking something of a demonic slant to the creature we all know and love.

DEMONS ATTACK IN TRAILER FOR LIONSGATE’S ‘THE POSSESSION’

Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert’s Ghost House Pictures and Lionsgate have released a trailer for THE POSSESSION, directed by Ole Bornedal, and due for release on August 31st, 2012. Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport, and Natasha Calis, the film (formerly THE DIBBUK BOX) is inspired by a 2004 Los Angeles Times story about a Jewish demon, or dibbuk, jinx box that went up for auction on eBay.

Synopsis from Dread Central:

One family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil. Clyde (Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (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.
