A New Type Of Possession Horror! Imagine a live broadcasted exorcism that goes horribly and unleashes demonic forces into the living rooms of an entire nation.

Written, directed and edited by Australian filmmakers Cameron and Colin Cairnes (100 Bloody Acres, Scare Campaign), the film stars David Dastmalchian (The Suicide Squad, Oppenheimer) who plays the charismatic Late-Night talk show host Jack Delroy, whose live broadcast unexpectedly unleashes evil into the nation’s living rooms.
