Have a look-see for yourself, followed by an exclusive clip and images you’ll only see here!
Official 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.

About the Production: In June of 2016, Michael Williams, the film’s writer/director, began writing the original script based on an undeveloped concept that would later become The Atoning. During the writing process, pre-production began swiftly in July to prepare for the start of principal photography August 18th, 2016 in West Point, MS.
Production took place in a 140-year-old Victorian house in the director’s hometown. Three days before production began, the production design team filled the entire home with furniture, decorations, and props generously donated or loaned to the film by the local community. With a cast and crew from Mississippi and the surrounding areas, the film successfully wrapped production on August 31st, 2016.
In order to meet upcoming festival deadlines for early 2017, The Atoning had a swift post production period from September to January of 2017. While the film was “complete” in January 2017, final changes were to the film were completed in April of 2017 to prepare the film for distribution.
