An attempt at a “reverse exorcism” leads to all manner of horrific developments in the fest favorite.

ANYTHING FOR JACKSON is now available exclusively on Shudder in the U.S., UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Directed by Justin G. Dyck from a script by Keith Cooper, it stars veteran actors Sheila McCarthy and Julian Richings (WRONG TURN, CUBE), along with Konstantina Mantelos, Josh Cruddas and Yannick Bisson. The synopsis: “After losing their only grandson in a car accident, grief-stricken Audrey [McCarthy] and Henry [Richings], a doctor, kidnap his pregnant patient [Mantelos] with the intention of performing a ‘reverse exorcism,’ putting Jackson inside her unborn child. It doesn’t take long to figure out Jackson isn’t the only ghost the grandparents invited into their home. Now it’s a race against time for the couple, as well as the pregnant woman to figure a way out of the haunting they’ve set upon themselves.”
