"The monster... it's you, daddy." Despite caring for his daughter, documentary filmmaker Michael King doesn’t think he has anything left to lose. His wife has died, he doesn’t believe in the supernatural, and in his latest film he’s out to prove his disbelief as an indisputable fact… using himself as the test subject. In The Possession of Michael King, the titular character learns that paranormal evil is all too real, and the movie's first trailer shows Michael undergoing bloody-eyed transformations.

Michael King (Shane Johnson) doesn’t believe in God or The Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, the documentary filmmaker decides to make his next film about the search for the existence of the supernatural. Michael decides to make 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. Dale Dickey (IRON MAN 3), Tomas Arana(GLADIATOR), and Julie McNiven (“Mad Men”) co-star in this intense supernatural spine-tingler from the producers of WHITE NOISE and THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT.

Hitting theaters on August 22nd and VOD on August 26th, The Possession of Michael King was written and directed by David Jung based on a story crafted by himself and Tedi Sarafian. The film stars Shane Johnson, Ella Anderson, Cara Pifko, Dale Dickey, Julie McNiven, and Tomas Arana.
