Released here in the UK on DVD and Blu-ray on 23rd March is a new possession horror called The Atticus Institute, and a freaky new trailer has just been released, so check it out below.
Written and directed by Chris Sparling (writer of Buried) in his directorial debut, THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE stars Rya Kihlstedt (“Dexter”), William Mapother (“Lost”, The Grudge), John Rubinstein (“Angel”), and Sharon Maughan (The Bank Job) and was executive produced by Dan Clifton.
Dr. Henry West founded The Atticus Institute in the early 1970s to test individuals expressing supernatural abilities – E.S.P., clairvoyance, psychokinesis, etc. Despite witnessing several noteworthy cases, nothing could have prepared Dr. West and his colleagues for Judith Winstead. She outperformed every subject they had ever studied – soon gaining the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense, who subsequently took control of the research facility.
The more experiments they conducted on Judith, the clearer it became that her abilities were the manifestation of evil forces within her, prompting the government to take measures to weaponize this force. But they soon discovered there are powers that exist in this world that simply cannot be controlled. Now the details of the inexplicable events that occurred within The Atticus Institute are being made public after remaining classified for nearly forty years.
