Horror fans are able to be drawn back to the supernatural, as the acquisition rights for the upcoming genre film, ‘The Possession Experiment,’ have been secured by Momentum Pictures. The official announcement of the thriller’s acquisition was made by the distributor’s Senior Vice President of Content, Ian Goggins.
‘The Possession Experiment’ was directed by ‘Monumental’ helmer, Scott B. Hansen, who also co-wrote the script for his latest project with Mary J. Dixon. The anticipated horror movie stars Chris Minor, Jake Brinn, Nicky Jasper, KT Fanelli and Bill Moseley.
Of the drama’s acquisition, Goggins noted that “‘The Possession Experiment’ is a film that takes audiences for a ride. Bill Moseley has a great following in the horror-genre community, with films like ‘Halloween’ and ‘The Devil’s Rejects,’ so we are confident fans and enthusiasts alike will be thrilled to see this new project.”
‘The Possession Experiment’ tells the story of Brandon (Minor), who has always been drawn to the supernatural. When asked to pick a topic to base his final world theology class project on, he decides to explore the dark world of exorcisms. Teamed up with three classmates, the group investigates a multiple homicide that they eventually discover was an exorcism gone horribly wrong. Brandon becomes obsessed with the event, and in a strange turn of events, decides the only way to research this topic is to undergo an exorcism himself.
The horror thriller was produced by Todd Slater and executive produced by Bob Winegard and T. Anthony Jones. The movie’s acquisition deal deal was negotiated on behalf of Momentum Pictures by Sejin Croninger, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Acquisitions for Entertainment One, and Todd Slater of Blue Fox Entertainment, on behalf of the filmmakers.
