Sick of possession/exorcism movies? If so, that’s fair because we do get a lot of them, but none quite like director Jordan Galland‘s latest, Ava’s Possessions. The movie stars Louisa Krause as the title character, Ava Dobkins. However, unlike most possession movies, this one doesn’t cover what happens to Ava when she becomes possessed but rather what happens after her exorcism, when she’s forced to take responsibility for everything the demon made her do.
This is where the highlight of the film comes in, Spirit Possession Anonymous, which is basically AA for the post-possessed. It’s an especially clever spin on the possession scenario and we have the opportunity to share a clip from the film that gives you a taste of what goes down in this unique and unusual support group. You can check that out below and be sure to catch Ava’s Possessions when it hits select theaters and VOD on March 4th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ava’s Possessions:
Ava Dobkins (Louisa Krause, Martha Marcy May Marlene) is recovering from demonic possession. With no memory of the past month, she is forced to attend a Spirit Possession Anonymous support group. As Ava struggles to reconnect with her friends, get her job back, and figure out where the huge bloodstain in her apartment came from, she’s plagued by nightmarish visions – the demon is trying to come back.
Ava’s Possessions is written and directed by Jordan Galland and features an original score by Sean Lennon. The film stars Krause, Jemima Kirke (HBO’s Girls), Carol Kane (Netflix’s The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Alysia Reiner and Deborah Rush (both of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black), alongside horror favorites Whitney Able (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane), William Sadler (Tales from the Crypt presents Demon Knight), Lou Taylor Pucci (The Evil Dead), and Dan Fogler (NBC’s Hannibal).
