‘The Banishing’ is based on the true story of the most haunted house in England. A young reverend, Linus (Heffernan), his wife, Marianne (Findlay), and their daughter, Adelaide (McKenna-Bruce), move into a manor with a horrifying secret. When a vengeful spirit haunts the little girl and threatens to tear the family apart, the reverend and his wife are forced to confront their beliefs. They must turn to black magic by seeking the help of a famous Occultist…or risk losing their daughter.
