The Atoning: Atmospheric horror film hits DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD on September 5th
When it comes to horror movies, shock and jump scares do not a meal make. You need atmosphere. Thick, meaty atmosphere you need to cut with a cleaver. And writer/director/producer Michael Williams’s new skin-crawler The Atoning is a movie that is ripe with atmosphere and often unbearable tension.
The Atoning synopsis: Vera, Ray, and Sam, a seemingly normal family, are haunted by more than mere ghosts. The lingering horror of their past threatens their ability to function as a loving family until they become enlightened by a mystical encounter. From that moment on, they’re thrust into a horror worse than anything they’ve ever experienced. Personal demons manifest and tear the family apart from the inside out as they come to terms with their past.
The Atoning is produced by Michael LaCour and Joni Seitz, executive produced by Daniel Wood, associate produced by Sabrita Gordon, associate produced by David Roberson with music by composer Keatzi Gunmoney. Williams is also the cinematographer, editor, and executive producer. The film stars Virginia Newcomb, Michael La Cour, and Cannon Bosarge.
