Chris Sun has been making gnarly Australian horror movies for the past decade. Indie hits like Daddy’s Little Girl, Charlie’s Farm, and BOAR have all gained praise here at MH and among genre fans around the globe. He seems to have a knack for squeezing the most out of tried and true formulas. Now, after making what I consider to be some of the strongest entries in the slasher and creature feature subgenres in recent years, Sun is setting his sights on yet another classic horror formula: possession movies.
The Possessed stars Australian horror icon John Jarratt (Wolf Creek) as an ordinary man with an extraordinary gift. Together with his nephew Liam (Lincoln Lewis), they perform exorcisms for those in need. But once the demonic possessions begin to increase, they team up with another gifted medium to put an end to the carnage.
Sun is known for his incredible practical effects, so hopefully those make an appearance here as well (it looks like they do). We’ll have more on this one as release grows nearer, but until then, check out these exclusive images that we scored from the production team:
