The Atticus Institute

With the genre being littered with one tale of possession after another, it’s nice to see a little film like THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE come along and try something new. The entire trailer is made up of faux documentary footage and interviews with people who witnessed Judith Winstead’s destruction. Had Carrie White ever been locked up by the government, it probably would have looked a lot like this. Check it out!

THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE comes to us from the producer of THE CONJURING Peter Safran and it will hit VOD, Blu-ray and DVD on January 20, 2015. You can pre-order the Blu-ray right HERE.

Dr. Henry West founded The Atticus Institute in the early 1970s to test individuals expressing supernatural abilities – E.S.P., clairvoyance, psychokinesis, etc. Despite witnessing several noteworthy cases, nothing could have prepared Dr. West and his colleagues for Judith Winstead. She outperformed every subject they had ever studied – soon gaining the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense, who subsequently took control of the research facility. The more experiments they conducted on Judith, the clearer it became that her abilities were the manifestation of evil forces within her, prompting the government to take measures to weaponize this force. But they soon discovered there are powers that exist in this world that simply cannot be controlled. Now the details of the inexplicable events that occurred within The Atticus Institute are being made public after remaining classified for nearly forty years.

Directed by Chris Sparling, the film stars Rya Khilstedt (“Dexter”), William Mapother (“Lost”, The Grudge), Harry Groener (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), John Rubenstein (“Angel”) and Sharon Maughn (The Bank Job) and was executive produced by Dan Clifton.
