After a little hiatus from releasing horror films, Dark Castle is returning to the genre with the forthcoming ghost chiller THE APPARITION and have premiered the official trailer and theatrical poster. Centered around a group of college parapsychologists that assemble an experiment to test their theory that ghosts & paranormal happenings only exist if you create them in your head, only to succeed in bringing a vicious entity over into their world.
There’s a been-there-done-that tone throughout the trailer, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say some moments in the trailer gave me a little chill. Dark Castle’s track record isn’t exactly horror heaven but they’ve released some offbeat and dare I say underrated flicks (Orphan, Splice, the first five minutes of Ghost Ship) that are worth ticket admission. Todd Lincoln is making his directorial debut with Ashley Greene (Twilight series), Sebastian Stan (Black Swan, Captain America) and Tom Felton (Harry Potter series) rounding out the cast. THE APPARITION will be scaring up your local theater at the tail end of summer, August 24th!
Synopsis: “A couple are haunted by a supernatural presence that is unleashed during a college experiment.“
