Horror director Chris Sun, the Australian filmmaker behind Boar, Charlie’s Farm, Daddy’s Little Girl, and Come and Get Me, has shared with Bloody Disgusting a first look at his new film The Possessed, some of which showcase the practical effects Chris is known for.
The Possessed stars Wolf Creek‘s John Jarrett 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.”
Also starring are Angie Kent, Melissa Tkautz, Simone Buchanan, and Jade Kevin Foster. It was produced by Christine Hulsby, Sue Baldwin, Danny Baldwin, Mitchell Clough and Chris Sun.
The Possessed is set to be released in July 2021.
