I’ll admit that I hadn’t heard of Incarnate before, but the Blumhouse production started shooting three years ago and since its completion has been sitting on a shelf for reasons unknown. Sounding like a cross between The Exorcist and Inception, it’s the first horror movie to be directed by Brad Peyton, who made the ridiculously dumb but also ridiculosuly fun disaster hit San Andreas as well as Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.
Dr. Seth Ember is an “incarnate.” The man has the power to enter the minds of those possessed by evil spirits. His latest mission from the Vatican is to get into the mind of a young man to battle a demon. Ember discovers the spirit possessing the boy is the same one responsible for the death of his wife and child. It’s up to Ember to stop the demon before it kills the kid and wreaks havoc on Earth.
Here’s the latest trailer:
Incarnate is directed by Brad Peyton, written by Ronnie Christensen, and starS Aaron Eckhart, Carice van Houten and David Mazou. At the moment it’s scheduled to come out in the US on the 2nd of December, but no doubt that’ll change. No news of a UK date yet.
