Chilling new stills of Chris Sun’s latest film The Possessed have been unleashed! The six released images are a stunning showcase of the practical effects Chris’s films are known for and provide a first-hand look at the stellar Australian cast.
The Possessed is an intense film that follows Jacob Chandler (John Jarratt) who is just an ordinary man with an extraordinary gift. Jacob is an accidental exorcist (I have so many questions) and together with his nephew Liam (Lincoln Lewis), they have forged a career clearing demons from the bodies of their clients. Though lately, something odd is happening and demonic possessions are on the rise. In order to keep those he cares about safe from the wrath of the unspeakable evil, Jacob must fight for them to survive.
But Jacob and Liam aren’t the only ones with “the gift”. When meeting Liam’s new girlfriend, Atalie Carlisle (Lauren Grimson), he recognizes something in her dark gaze – she too can see the damned. 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.
The Possessed is written and directed by Chris Sun (Boar, Charlie’s Farm, Daddy’s Little Girl and Come and Get Me) and stars John Jarratt, Lincoln Lewis, Angie Kent, Lauren Grimson, Melissa Tkautz, Simone Buchanan, and Jade Kevin Foster. The film was produced by Christine Hulsby, Sue Baldwin, Danny Baldwin, Mitchell Clough, and Chris Sun. The Possessed is currently set to be released in July of this year.
