The Occult Starring Jennifer Carpenter Gets Title Change, Release Date


LD Entertainment’s The Occult is now going to be known as The Devil’s Rapture.  

Written by Karl Mueller and directed by Christian E. Christiansen, the horror film stars Jennifer Carpenter (pictured), Alycia Debnam-Carey,  Rufus Sewell, Thomas McDonell, Adelaide Kane, Leah Pipes, Colm Meaney, Stacey Edwards and Ric Reitz.  

In addition to the title change, we have learned that the film is no longer opening in February and will instead bow on October 11th.

The synopsis goes like this:

Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town’s vigilant Elders.  Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or as most believe a chilling omen of something yet to come. Now, on the eve of their 18th birthday, the young women are mysteriously disappearing one by one and feared dead. Terror has overtaken this quiet community.  Could this be the work of a serial killer, one of the village elders or a horrific prophecy come true, born of the supernatural, The Occult?
