Sam Raimi's Finest
Filmmaker Sam Raimi's top 5 horror flicks.

Whether you’re looking for a laugh or scare, the box office has it all this weekend.

In one corner, the sexy and laugh-out-loud flick For a Good Time, Call… finally makes its theatrical release after receiving warm reviews at the Sundance Film Festival. Starring comedic vixens Ari Graynor and Lauren Miller, the film centers around two unlikely roommates who start a phone sex line in order to pay for their swanky New York City apartment.

But what if you want to scare your pants off instead of splitting them with laughter?

Sam Raimi, the man behind horror classics such as The Evil Dead and Army of Darkness, is at it again as he’s in the producer’s chair for The Possession.

Based on the famous Jewish folklore of the Dybbuk box, the movie revolves around a young girl who becomes possessed after purchasing the haunted artifact at a yard sale.

The owner of the real Dybbuk box actually offered to send it to Raimi as a gift, but the filmmaker quickly declined, saying, “I didn’t want anything to do with it. I’m scared of the thing.”

Hey, if it can scare Raimi, it should definitely have moviegoers shaking in terror.
