The Wicked Within added to the 8 Films to Die For lineup

Last Updated on July 22, 2021

Continuing to assemble the films they'll be reviving the "8 Films to Die For" brand with, After Dark has announced that the third film of the eight (following the previously announced RE-KILL and MURDER IN THE DARK) will be director Jay Alaimo's THE WICKED WITHIN.

Starring Karen Austin, Gianni Capaldi, Enzo Cilenti, Sienna Guillory, Michele Hicks, and Eric Roberts, the film tells the following story:

When a little girl dies, her family gathers to mourn the loss. Yet the pain is not forgotten and a vengeful demon spirit takes possession of a vulnerable family member tearing at the ties that bind them all together. One by one, it forces each family member to confess to his or her buried lies and face the morbid consequences of their sins.

The trailer can be viewed below, and THE WICKED WITHIN looks to be a decent possession movie. I could do without the direct references to THE EXORCIST, though.

The latest 8 Films to Die For will be playing in theatres on October 16, 2015, with Twentieth Century Fox handling the home video release that will follow.
