Trailer: Dillane and Grasse face the horror of Astral projection

Astral Chris Mul Frank Dillane

Frank Dillane made the choice to leave the AMC series Fear the Walking Dead during the recent fourth season, a shocking decision given the fact that he was basically, alongside Kim Dickens (whose character was also killed off during season 4, to her disappointment), the star of that show. Dillane felt it was time to move on from the world of zombies, though, and his first step in doing so is to take the lead role in a different horror project, director Chris Mul's ASTRAL.

Co-starring Vanessa Grasse of the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE prequel LEATHERFACE and Catherine Steadman of the World War II horror movie OUTPOST: BLACK SUN, ASTRAL has the following synopsis: 

Coming to terms with the explanation of his mother's untimely death, Alex turns to spiritual contact after the relationship with his father breaks down. As a student of metaphysics, Alex learns of the "scientific" premise of astral projection - the ability to project your spirit into an unseen spatial dimension. Attempting to astral project, Alex becomes plagued by shadow spirits - malevolent entities vying to enter his body to access our world. Alex soon learns that he is not the only member of his family to have been besieged by such beings, as his mother’s dark past is brought to his attention.

Chris Mul wrote the screenplay with Michael Mul.

Vertical Entertainment will be giving the paranormal thriller a theatrical and VOD release in just over two weeks, on November 23rd. 

In anticipation of the release, a trailer for ASTRAL has arrived online and can be seen below, along with the poster art.
