The Occult, from Roommate director Christian Christiansen, fills out cast and starts shooting

THE OCCULT, a horror thriller from the director of THE ROOMMATE, Christian E. Christiansen, has really shaped up since it's initial announcement earlier this month. The flick just commenced principal photography at the Screen Gems Studios and on locations around Wilmington, North Carolina. In addition, the full cast has been revealed. While some of these names had already been mentioned, a number of new ones are now making themselves known:

Starring in THE OCCULT are Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colm Meaney, Rufus Sewell, Thomas McDonell, Adelaide Kane, Leah Pipes, Stacey Edwards, Ric Reitz and Jennifer Carpenter.

Initially, Anne Heche was attached to the thriller, but as her name isn't anywhere to be found here, I guess she took a hike...

The official synopsis: Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town's vigilant Elders. Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or as most believe a chilling omen of something yet to come. Now, on the eve of their 18th birthday, the young women are mysteriously disappearing one by one and feared dead. Terror has overtaken this quiet community. Could this be the work of a serial killer, one of the village elders or a horrific prophecy come true, born of the supernatural, The Occult?

Written by Karl Mueller, the horror-thriller is produced by Pete Shilaimon, Mickey Liddell and Jennifer Hilton Monroe and executive produced by Scott Holroyd, Michael Zelman and Paddy Cullen. Liddell's LD Entertainment will distribute.

Adelaide Kane
