The Dybbuk box, or The Dibbuk box (Hebrew: קופסת דיבוק, romanized: Kufsat Dibbuk) is a wine box which is claimed by Kevin Mannis to be haunted by a dybbuk. A dybbuk is a concept from Jewish mythology and concerns a restless, usually malicious, spirit said to be able to haunt and even possess the living. The box, supposedly from early 20th century Spain, gained notoriety when it was auctioned on eBay with an accompanying horror story written by Mannis. This is the original inspiration for the 2012 film The Possession. Investigation of the box’s construction revealed that it was assembled not in Spain but in the United States, and investigation of its backstory concluded that the legend is fictional according to Mannis, who despite not identifying as Jewish himself claims to have invented the story of Jewish folklore and haunted Holocaust survivors to sell his box.
