Horror director Chris Sun, the Australian filmmaker behind Boar, Charlie’s Farm, Daddy’s Little Girl, and Come and Get Me, is exorcising demons with The Possessed.
The Possessed stars Wolf Creek‘s John Jarratt as an ordinary man with an extraordinary gift. “Jacob is an accidental exorcist and together with his nephew Liam (Lincoln Lewis), they have forged a career in clearing demons from the bodies of their clients.
“Of late, something has changed and demonic possessions are on the rise. In order to keep those he loves safe from the wrath of unspeakable evil, Jacob must fight for them to survive.”
The synopsis continues: “When meeting Liam’s new girlfriend, Atalie Carlisle (Lauren Grimson), he recognizes something in her dark, broken gaze – she too can see the damned. Jacob never expected to meet anyone else like himself, nor did he anticipate needing her help. When summoned to a hauntingly beautiful homestead with a tragic past, Jacob must call upon all his experience and Atalie’s untrained powers, to uncover the layers of demonic deception at play. Death is here, and it will do anything to be free.”
