Gravitas Ventures has released the first trailer and poster for its upcoming release, Along Came the Devil II. The picture stars Academy Award Nominate Bruce Davison; Laura Slade Wiggins (“Shameless”); Mark Ashworth (The Magnificent Seven) Cassius DeVan; Tiffany Fallon and Heather DeVan as Sarah (Along Came the Devil). Along Came the Devil helmer Jason DeVan returns to direct this sequel.
According to the official plot synopsis:
After receiving an unsettling voicemail, Jordan (Wiggins) returns home, looking for answers, only to find her estranged father and even more questions. A demonic force has attached itself to the town and no one is safe. The only one who seems to know anything is the small town’s Reverend.
Of the first installment, I said on this site:
That “based on true events” tag has huge caché with fans of demonic possession stories. Even though it was based on a novel, everyone knew The Exorcist was supposed to be based on an actual case, and ever since then, you can’t beat that as a selling point. Besides, people who would discount the existence of vampires, werewolves and the walking/living/cannibalistic dead out of hand are often open-minded on the possibility of demonic possession. If you think it can happen to you, it’s that much scarier.
[Director Jason] DeVan also milks his modest budget for every penny, and his possession makeup and special effects will hold their own against the high-priced spread. Shots of the possessed Ashley up on the ceiling are unnerving to say the least. One of his secret weapons is cinematographer Justin Duval, who’s shot a handsome-looking product.
Gravitas Pictures will release Along Came the Devil II in theaters, On Demand and Digital HD just time time for Halloween on October 11th, 2019.
