Don’t miss Anything for Jackson, the acclaimed horror debut from Canadian filmmaker Justin G. Dyck, who has over a decade of experience with celebrated Christmas movies and family-friendly fares. Anything for Jackson hits Shudder on December 3rd.
Give the trailer a spin and read more about the movie below.
After losing their only grandson in a car accident, grief-stricken Audrey and Henry, a doctor, kidnaps his pregnant patient with the intention of performing a “Reverse Exorcism”, putting Jackson inside her unborn child. It doesn’t take long to figure out Jackson isn’t the only ghost the grandparents invited into their home. Now it’s a race against time for the couple, as well as the pregnant woman to figure a way out of the haunting they’ve set upon themselves.
The film features winningly demonic practical effects and stars British-Canadian stage presence and character actor Julian Richings (Hard Core Logo, Vicious Fun), Sheila McCarthy (Die Hard 2), and Konstantina Mantelos (A Christmas Crush), and is written by Dyck’s frequent collaborator Keith Cooper. The small cast is rounded out by Josh Cruddas (Polar) and Yannick Bisson (Another Wolfcop, Murdoch Mysteries).
