If you’re not excited already, here’s THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING’s official synopsis: Michael King (Johnson) doesn’t believe in God or The Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, the documentary filmmaker decides to make his next movie about the search for the existence of the supernatural. Michael decides to put himself at 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…

Here’s what genre critics are saying about THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING:

“A compelling and frightening look at our deepest fears.”—Uncle Creepy, Dread Central

“THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING culminates into a horrific and frightening journey into a hellish madness…The hook in Jung’s film is that Michael willingly seeks out proof of spiritualism and decides that the darkest route is the road to take. Few possession films start from the beginning like Jung’s does.”—Andrew Mack, Twitchfilm

“Showing the world of the occult in new and macabre ways, THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING makes the world of the paranormal feel fresh and new.”—Mark Miler, Ain’t It Cool News

“A wicked twist on the found footage genre.”—Patrick Cooper, Bloody-Disgusting.com

For all these free screenings (make sure you have cities and dates straight!), offer is good for you and one guest. Names will be checked at the door. Offer is first come, first served, and we will confirm your rsvp. Seating is not guaranteed, however.

This advance preview is presented by Anchor Bay Films, who will be releasing THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING in theaters on August 22 and on VOD and iTunes on August 26. So see you at the movies! It’s gonna be a hell of a good time!
