It’s no secret that Blumhouse has effectively taken control of the horror genre. From their original films which have changed the landscape of our beloved genre to BH Tilt, which releases some of the finest indie horror around, they have become a powerhouse of horror. The latest release from BH Tilt is the intensely creepy Incarnate
Here’s the official synopsis:
A scientist with the ability to enter the subconscious minds of the possessed must save a young boy from the grips of a demon with powers never seen before, while facing the horrors of his past
Directed by Brad Peyton (San Andreas), Incarnate stars Aaron Eckhart, Carice Van Houten, Catalina Sandino Moreno, David Mazouz, Kier O’Donnell, Matt Nable and John Pirruccello. The film was produced by Jason Blum, Trevor Engelson & Micheal Seitzman and written by Ronnie Christenson
This modern take on the exorcism sub-genre gives a fresh breath into a stale sector of horror. Not that there is anything wrong with past exorcism films, but adding a scientific aspect to the story feels like a welcome change, something we haven’t really seen yet.
