Matisyahu to appear in horror movie

This summer you'll get the opportunity to see the formerly Hasidic rapper Matisyahu try his luck on the silver screen in the upcoming horror flick The Possession.  The movie is directed by Sam Raimi, of Evil Dead and Spiderman fame - and though Matisyahu will only be playing a minor role, the movie has a strong Jewish theme.

The Possession tells the creepy story of a dybbuk, the Yiddish word for a possessing demon from Jewish folklore, that gets into the body of a little girl. If you're feeling brave, watch the trailer below.
