When an American teenager visits her estranged father’s home in Italy, she expects to see the world and bond with her dad. But Jenny soon discovers her expectations are far from reality. With her father immersed in his work, she encounters a peculiar group of children who take her to the Neverlake, which ancient legend calls the “Lake of Idols” for the healing powers of its water. In this mystical place, she is thrust into the mystery of three missing children and called upon by the 3,000-year-old spirits of the lake to retrieve ancient artifacts stolen from its murky depths. She soon uncovers an evil world of horrific secrets, cruel medical experiments and lies…which may lead closer to home than she knows.

Writer-director Jack Thomas Smith assembles footage taken from the cameras used by two psychotic brothers, who documented a murder spree in North Carolina in 2011.
"Unlike its predecessors The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, which relied on sparse visual evidence of supernatural activity, INFLICTION reveals in shiver-inducing detail the brothers' hideous actions and what led them to commit their crimes. It shows the effects of people's actions (or inactions) and their effect on others' lives, presenting in cold reality a hard look at the blurred line between society's criminals and its victims."

The Possession of Michael King
Available on DVD, Blu-ray & VOD: August 26th
Here's your first look at the key art for the film.
The film tells the story of documentary filmmaker Michael King (Shane Johnson), who doesn’t believe in God or the Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, Michael decides to make his next film about the search for the existence of the supernatural, making 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.
