Wolf Creek star John Jarratt returns to the silver screen with The Possessed, a spine-tingling film that will keep you on the edge of your seat. And we’ve got the first images that tease the horrors that await.


In the film, Jacob Chandler (Jarratt) is just an ordinary man with an extraordinary gift. The Possessed is a terrifying story of accidental exorcist Jacob and his nephew Liam (Lincoln Lewis) who have forged a career clearing demons from the bodies of their clients. Of late, something has changed and demonic possessions are increasing, and in order to keep those he loves safe from the wrath of unspeakable evil, Jacob must fight for them to survive.

When meeting Liam’s new girlfriend, Atalie Carlisle (Lauren Grimson), he recognizes something in her dark, broken gaze – she too can see the damned. Jacob never expected to meet anyone else like himself, nor did he anticipate needing her help. When summoned to a hauntingly beautiful homestead with a tragic past, Jacob must call upon all his experience and Atalie’s untrained powers, to uncover the layers of demonic deception at play. Death is here, and it will do anything to be free.


Featuring an all-star Australian cast including John Jarrat, Lincoln Lewis, Angie Kent, Lauren Grimson, Melissa Tkautz, and Jade Kevin Foster, The Possessed was written and directed by Chris Sun (Boar, Charlie’s Farm, Daddy’s Little Girl and Come and Get Me) and produced by Glenn Rushton, Lee Rushton, Mark Gardener, Kris Maric, Christine Hulsby, Danny Baldwin, Sue Baldwin, Mitchell Clough.


The Possessed is set to be released in June of 2021.
