Synopsis: "THE POSSESSION EXPERIMENT tells the story of Brandon (Minor), who has always been drawn to the supernatural.

Teamed up with three classmates, the group investigates a multiple homicide that they eventually discover was an exorcism gone horribly wrong. Brandon becomes obsessed with the event, and in a strange turn of events, decides the only way to research this topic is to undergo an exorcism himself."


Upcoming Invisible Hands Comic Series: Press Release: "American Gothic Press, the comic book publishing arm of Famous Monsters, will be releasing a new science fiction mini-series, INVISIBLE HANDS, beginning in March 2017.

The series, adapted from Laszlo Tamasfi’s award-winning script, is a fragmented and philosophical tale that begins when a mysterious man with severe head trauma disrupts the life of a doctor and his cohort. The doctor, Leonard Gray, soon discovers connections between the man, David Wasp, and a corrupt corporate leader conducting twisted experiments on the human brain.

“The Silver Scream Festival really stood out from other conventions,” Tamasfi says, “not only because it had comics categories, but because it was hosted by the team behind Famous Monsters of Filmland, which I'm a huge fan of.” Tamasfi met artist Michael Malatini online and wrote INVISIBLE HANDS with Malatini’s art collaboration in mind. “We set out to do a really strange anthology book with a lot of crazy ideas, and it was reassuring to know that we weren't out of our minds.”

Holly Interlandi, American Gothic Press’s Editor-in-Chief, claims the decision was ultimately a shoe-in. “We received so many entries in the Graphic Novel Script category, but INVISIBLE HANDS was something I’d never seen before,” she says. “It was both anthology and mini-series and tackled science and religion in a way that a lot of writers would feel nervous about. I knew we had to publish it.”

A prologue to the series was first published in AGP’s FAMOUS MONSTERS PRESENTS TALES FROM THE ACKER-MANSION, a hardcover anthology of graphic short stories dedicated to Famous Monsters’ late founder Forrest J Ackerman.

The first issue of INVISIBLE HANDS, an oversized issue that includes a reprint of the prologue, will be solicited in the January edition of Diamond Previews for a March 2017 release date."
