Momentum Pictures announced the acquisition of the anticipated horror film, THE POSSESSION EXPERIMENT. Directed by Scott B. Hansen (Monumental) and written by Mary J. Dixon (Until It Hurts) and Hansen, the film stars Chris Minor (Edge), Jake Brinn (Glimpse), Nicky Jasper (Nocturne) with KT Fanelli ("Pretty Bad Girls") and Bill Moseley (Halloween). Momentum Pictures' Senior Vice President of Content Ian Goggins made the announcement today.
"THE POSSESSION EXPERIMENT is a film that takes audiences for a ride," said Goggins. "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 POSSESSION EXPERIMENT was produced by Todd Slater (The Truth About Lies) and executive produced by Bob Winegard and T Anthony Jones.
The 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.
