Caylee Cowan, Jesse Metcalf, William Mapother, Barbara Crampton and Lin Shaye to Lead the Cast of THE POSSESSION AT GLADSTONE MANOR

AMP to Handle Worldwide Sales at Cannes

Umbrelic Entertainment’s Brian Katz and Thomas Zambeck are proud to announce that filming has commenced for the horror film, THE POSSESSION AT GLADSTONE MANOR. Starring Caylee Cowan (Hypnotic), Jesse Metcalf (John Tucker Must Die), Charlotte Kirk (The Reckoning), Darren Weiss (Inside Man), Barbara Crampton (You’re Next), William Mapother (Blackhat), and Lin Shaye (Insidious Franchise), production is underway in Kansas City, utilizing the new Missouri state tax incentives.

AMP’s Anthony Buckner will be handling international sales at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival.

“As die-hard fans of the horror genre, this project feels like a dream come true,” says Zambeck. “We’re thrilled to bring this dark vision to life, and scare audiences with this timeless tale for years to come.”

When Jamie Black discovers her mother has gone missing in THE POSSESSION AT GLADSTONE MANOR, she resolves to investigate by applying for the same job her mother held at Gladstone Manor. Jamie soon finds evidence that her mother isn’t the only missing person, and that she may be dealing with sinister forces beyond this world. Desperate, she enlists the help of her brothers – Rupert and Chris – and Sam (Chris’ fiancée): all of whom are professional criminals and former marines. Once Jamie arrives at the house, she is immediately greeted by a mysterious and evil Nurse, and soon realizes the residents of Gladstone Manor are an enemy like no other, with a dark power she’s never faced. Trapped in the house, she must rely on her brothers and future sister-in-law to save her.

At the helm of production is director K. Asher Levin (Dig) who co-wrote the script with Danny Matier (The Unborn), from a story by Addam Bramich. Theresa Wayman from Warpaint is composing the score.

“I couldn’t be more excited to work with this amazing cast and my wonderful producing partners,” says Levin. “Together we plan to create new nightmares that would make Wes Craven proud.”

Along with Katz and Zambeck, THE POSSESSION AT GLADSTONE MANOR is being produced in association with Jordon Rioux (Head Count) and Chris Knitter (The Stylist) of the Kansas City-based, Method Media. Sean Krajewski (Rumours), Ronnie Exley (Longlegs), Jeremy Ross (The Accursed), and Theresa Wayman executive produce through Rabbits Black, with Cowan and Crampton. Anish Gupta also serves as Executive Producer.

“We are bringing big budget feature films to Kansas City, Missouri because both the state AND the city provide incentives to filmmakers,” notes Knitter. “We can get up to half of our money back and provide jobs to hundreds of people. Kansas City’s production community is extremely strong, and the locations are very diverse.”
