Jinns, dybbuks and ghosts… frightening new movies for this Halloween season (part 1 of 3)

Billed as “the story of a groom possessed on his wedding day,” the movie Demon follows Piotr (Itay Tiran) as he endures possession by a dybbuk – the angry spirit of a dead person, according to Jewish folklore.  It’s earning 4-star reviews as a visceral metaphor for post-war Europe, but the cast’s believable portrayal of a family brought down by demonic possession is really the thrill.
