Set During the Spanish Flu, a First Look at ‘Possession’ Has Been Dug Up

Norwegian filmmaker Henrik M. Dahlsbakken (Project Z) is heading back to 1918 with his Spanish flu-set horror Possession, which teams the director with SF Studios and FilmBros, writes Variety.

The film portrays the terrifying events following a pastor’s actions in a small Sami village and calls to mind the device used in Tobe Hooper and Steven Spielberg’s Poltergeist.

“Exploring themes of faith and doubt amid a pandemic, Possession opens in 1918, as World War I is coming to an end and the Spanish flu is ravaging populations.

“After several years as a missionary in Madagascar, a pastor returns home to his family in Norway to start a congregation. With the help of a local mining company, he starts the work of building a church, but the place turns out to be an old South Sami burial ground. When it is decided that the remains should be removed, an indefinable evil begins to haunt the settlers.”

The site explains that the film sheds light on how the Sami were treated by the Norwegian society around the beginning of the last century.

“The South Sami culture has rarely been portrayed, and in Possession, we also explore a supernatural aspect. How we humans can find our inner flame in the face of oppression and injustice,” explained Dahlsbakken.

Possession stars Jan Sælid, Eva Nergård, Tarjei Sandvik Moe, Anna Filippa Hjarne, Dennis Storhøi, Nina Ellen Ødegård, and Benjamin Helstad.

Shooting took place in the Røros area in the Inland.
