Director Christopher Smith (Triangle, Severance, Creep) returns to the horror genre with The Banishing, a film which sets out to tell the “true story of the most haunted house in England.”
In The Banishing, a young reverend moves his family into a manor with a horrifying secret. When a vengeful spirit haunts their young daughter and threatens to tear the family apart, the reverend and his wife are forced to confront their beliefs and turn to black magic by seeking the help of a famous Occultist… or risk losing their daughter.
Jessica Brown Findlay (Black Mirror), John Heffernan (Collateral ), John Lynch (The Terror), and Sean Harris (Possum) star in the film. The script was written by David Beton, Ray Bogdanovich, and Dean Lines.
The Banishing haunts Shudder from April 15th. Check out the eerie trailer below!
