This Anguish trailer makes possession look cool again

Wouldn't you say this holiday season could use a little ANGUISH? Sonny Mallhi's teen possession flick will swoop down this December, heralded by this official trailer. Possession movies have taken a huge nose dive lately, with an endless array of films that just keep on beating that dead horse of THE EXORCIST, but ANGUISH might just turn things around. Not only does it have a new and exciting take on the possession angle, but it actually looks pretty intense, packing some visceral shocks into this two minute package of psychological torment. Check out the trailer below!

A new girl in a quiet town, Tess (Ryan Simpkins) tries to manage her psychosis while adjusting to her new life with her mom (Annika Marks).  After stumbling upon the shrine of Lucy (Amberley Gridley), a hit and run victim, Tess finds herself overwhelmed by hallucinations of the dead girl and starts to question her sanity again.  When the spirit possesses Tess’s mind and soul, mother and daughter are at a loss for where to turn next for salvation: religion or medicine? 

Both institutions have failed them to date but faith leads them to the house of Sarah (Karina Logue), Lucy’s mother, who has been despondent since the accident.  All together with time working against them, Sarah is desperate to believe that Lucy is still alive in Tess but neither parent wants to give up on their daughter.  Now that she understands what is happening to her, ultimately Tess must decide whether she wants to keep fighting or succumb to her affliction.

Theaters will succumb to ANGUISH on December 18th.
