An academic conjures up a poltergeist with terrifying consequences in this spine-chilling fact-based horror.
In 1974, maverick Oxford University Professor Joseph Coupland (Jared Harris) undertakes a dangerous private experiment. He recruits Brian McNeil (Sam Claflin) and some fellow PhD students to assist. Their subject is a disturbed young woman named Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke), who can remember nothing of her troubled past. Coupland's intention is to demonstrate that whatever they create in the laboratory is merely a manifestation of what already exists in her damaged mind. But the experiment goes horribly awry when the team find they have awakened a horrifying power beyond all scientific explanation! Inspired by real events, this is a white knuckle ride of a supernatural horror film from the legendary Hammer Films. Jared Harris, who played Moriarty in 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows', stars opposite rising British star Sam Claflin, whose credits include 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'.
