The cast includes Jason Lewis (Mr. Brooks), John Savage (The Deer Hunter), Catherine Mary Stewart (Night of the Comet) and Thomas Jay Ryan (Henry Fool).

The Attic is a classic ghost story in the tradition of The Shining and The Changeling,” states Cheryl Freeman, President and CEO of Allumination Filmworks in a press release. “The emphasis on psychological suspense has been brilliantly realized by director Mary Lambert.”

Emma (Elisabeth Moss) is a troubled teen with a strong aversion toward her family’s new house – particularly the attic. After moving into their picture-perfect Victorian home, Emma and her family come to feel uncomfortable and unhappy in their new surroundings. The situation escalates one day when Emma is in the attic alone and she is viciously attacked by someone who looks exactly like her! Emma becomes convinced that someone or something is haunting her, and that her own past holds the key. As the clues pile up, Emma discovers that she once had a twin sister named Beth, who died 12 days after they were born. Emma’s fear intensifies when she realizes that she can’t turn to her family for answers, and she begins to suspect that it may be Beth determined to destroy anyone who dares delve into the dark mysteries of The Attic.
