Lionsgate Feels The Presence in October

Post Thumb:


With October just around the corner (Can you believe it? Where has this year gone?), it seems fitting that some good old fashioned ghost stories get cooking to send a few tingles down our spines. Will The Presence do just that? Read on for details and to watch the official trailer!

From the Press Release: A hauntingly romantic ghost story comes alive this fall as Lionsgate releases The Presence on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand. Starring Oscar® winning actress Mira Sorvino (Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Mighty Aphrodite, 1995), the film also features Justin Kirk (Showtime’s “Weeds”) and Shane West (A Walk to Remember). Written and directed by Tom Provost (Under Suspicion) and executive produced by The Blair Witch Project co-creator Daniel Myrick, The Presence’s DVD premiere includes a “making of” featurette, audio commentary with the writer-director, and storyboards with commentary. The Presence will make its chilling debut on October 4th.

Looking to escape the pressures of everyday life, a woman (Sorvino) travels to a secluded cabin in the woods. She’s not alone, though, because an apparition (West) inhabits the cabin and begins to stalk her. But when the woman’s boyfriend (Kirk) arrives, the spirit in the house grows darker and more obsessive. She soon starts to exhibit weird and irrational behavior, and her boyfriend fears she’s been possessed by the ghost in love with her.

  • Audio commentary with writer-director Tom Provost

    You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

      It does sound interesting and I love ghost stories (good ghost stories that eschew epileptic camera work). Here’s hoping for this years ‘100 Feet’.
