Frightfest Glasgow preview: The Atticus Institute Simon Fitzjohn February 2, 2015 Film4 Frightfest, Glasgow, Glasgow Previews 1872 Here we go with yet another horror ‘From a producer of The Conjuring and Annabelle’. But, to be fair, we’re willing to give The Atticus Institute a chance, thanks mainly to a pretty effective trailer, which we’ve kindly included below. Echoing last year’s effective Banshee Chapter, here’s the synopsis: ‘Dr. Henry West founded The Atticus Institute in the 1970s to study telekinesis, clairvoyance E.S.P. and other unexplained psi-related phenomena. Thousands of subjects were tested using scientific methods many of whom showed abilities defying explanation by known physical laws. But just after West published the promising results of their research work, the small facility was mysteriously shut down in November 1976 by a concerned US Government. The reason? They met Judith Winstead whose supernatural abilities tested far beyond anything ever before witnessed. You won’t believe your eyes watching the shockumentary of the year from director Chris Sparling, writer of BURIED.’ Starring the likes of William Mapother and Rob Kerkovich, The Atticus Institute gets its European premiere in Glasgow On February 27 at 1.30pm.
