One of my personal favorite films of last year was Anything for Jackson, a truly skin-crawling exorcism film that was billed as a “wintery anti-Nativity tale” during its Shudder release. The film is now making its way to VOD, Digital HD, DVD and Blu-ray on June 15, 2021, from RLJE Films. Bloody Disgusting has given birth to the artwork, shared below.
In the film from director Justin G. Dyck, “After losing their only grandson in a car accident, grief-stricken Audrey (Sheila McCarthy) and Henry (Julian Richings), a doctor, kidnaps his pregnant patient with the intentions of performing a “reverse Exorcism”, putting Jackson inside her unborn child. It doesn’t take long to figure out Jackson isn’t the only ghost the grandparents invited into their home. Now it’s a race against time for the couple, as well as the pregnant woman to figure a way out of the haunting they’ve set upon themselves.”
“McCarthy and Richards deliver great lead performances that – coupled with a creepy ghost design and some genuinely unsettling moments – makes Anything for Jackson a worthwhile twist on the exorcism/possession subgenre,” wrote Joe Lipsett out of the Nightstream premiere.
