We all love a good possession flick…don’t we?

Well, if you do, here comes The Wicked Within, set for release in October.

The flick, directed by Jay Alaimo, was actually shot back in 2013, so it’s taken its time to get to us, but we’re hoping that’s not a bad thing.

Here’s a synopsis:

When a little girl dies, her family gathers to mourn the loss. Yet the pain is not forgotten and a vengeful demon spirit takes possession of a vulnerable family member tearing at the ties that bind them all together. One by one, it forces each family member to confess to his or her buried lies and face the morbid consequences of their sins…

The reliable Sienna Guillory stars as the possessed one, and we even get the delights of Eric Roberts popping up alongside the likes of Gianni Capaldi and Enzo Cilenti.

Here’s a new trailer, which actually doesn’t look that bad:
