Official Trailer for ‘Possession’ Haunted Horror Thriller from Norway

“As we all know, the Lord judges and the Lord punishes.” He does?? Samuel Goldwyn Films has revealed an official trailer for an indie horror thriller from Norway titled Possession, arriving in theaters this October. Not to be confused with the iconic Isabelle Adjani & Sam Neill thriller also titled Possession from 1981, this is something else. In this Norwegian film, a priest has been tasked with deciding the location of a new church for the local mining company, which reveals itself to be on top of an old Sami burial ground. After removing the remains, the dead come alive and haunt the settlers. The film stars Jan Sælid, Eva Nergård, and Tarjei Sandvik Moe, among many others. This looks like a very atmospheric, very dark horror film about how religion plays dirty tricks on the minds of men. That seems much scarier than all the hauntings.
