THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING

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.

In his own words

About his acting experience in this movie “Well, it’s one of the few times that an actor gets to really make an amazing transformation like this. So, for me it was exciting to show a broad range of what I love & what I can sink my teeth into. Instead of just playing a regular character, where you’re a dad, a husband, a cop or a lawyer – I really got a chance to go from family man who’s got everything going for him to someone who ends up taking a giant leap down into a rabbit hole.”

 

His opinion about supernatural powers

“What I can tell you is that in my research, I saw a lot of things that were very compelling. I watched a lot of videos, read a lot of stories, I saw things that seemed to be very inhuman to me. I wouldn’t say that I’m a believer, but I’m a doubter – I’m a doubter in both directions. I had some experiences throughout this process that put me in doubt. Do I have absolute proof that I can hold up to someone and say “Here’s proof of the supernatural?”, no I don’t. But given what I’ve seen in my life, because of this movie and my research, there are definitely some unanswered questions.”

 

About his future plans

“I do plan to make more films in this genre and I’d really like to work with David Yung, producer Guy Danella and Gold Circle Films again. But, I’d really like to make another genre film during the next hiatus that’s hopefully as terrifying as this film is. I’ve really fallen in love with this genre for sure.”
