Anchor Bay Heads into The Occult with THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING, Release Dates/Info!


The quickest way to catch my attention is simply mention the words: occult, demonology or possession. I pride myself on giving any horror film a chance, but as a lifelong fan of the possession sub-genre of horror, I have a pretty intense love for films dealing with that stuff. Enter Anchor Bay. The studio is set to unleash THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING to theaters August 22nd, with a DVD/Bluray/VOD and iTunes release coming four days later, on August 26th. Just from the synopsis, it sounds promising, dealing with a skeptic pretty much daring demonologists to show him proof of the occult and other entities, THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING sounds like a pretty intense time. For more info, and the official press release, see below!

Beverly Hills, CAMay 28, 2014 – Anchor Bay Films is proud to announce the release of the highly-anticipated, terrifying supernatural horror film THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING in theaters on August 22nd and available On iTunes, On Demand, DVD and Blu-ray on August 26th.  THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING is an intense supernatural spine-tingler from the producers of White Noise and The Haunting In Connecticut, directed by first time director David Jung, and starring Shane Johnson (Starz’ upcoming “Power”), Dale Dickey (Iron Man 3), Julie McNiven (TV’s “Supernatural”, “Mad Men”) and Tomas Arana (Guardians of the Galaxy). The film is written by David Jung and story by David Jung and Tedi Sarafian (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines).

“The film tells the story of documentary filmmaker Michael King (Shane Johnson), who doesn’t believe in God or the Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, Michael decides to make his next film about the search for the existence of the supernatural, making himself the center of the experiment – allowing demonologists, necromancers, and various practitioners of the occult to try the deepest and darkest spells and rituals they can find on him – in the hopes that when they fail, he’ll once and for all have proof that religion, spiritualism, and the paranormal are nothing more than myth. But something does happen. An evil and horrifying force has taken over Michael King.  And it will not let him go.”

THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING hits theaters August 22nd and DVD/Bluray/VOD/iTunes on August 26th via Anchor Bay Entertainment.
