It appears as if Jennifer Carpenter’s (pictured right) upcoming flick The Occult, has had somewhat of a name change. According to the folks over at Dread Central, the film will now be known as The Devil’s Rapture, which is set to make its way to theatres this October 11th, 2013.
The Devil’s Rapture is directed by Christian E. Christiansen, and starring alongside Carpenter is Alycia Debnam-Carey, Rufus Sewell, Thomas McDonell, Adelaide Kane, Leah Pipes, Colm Meaney, Stacey Edwards and Ric Reitz.
Synopsis: “Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town’s vigilant Elders. Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or, as most believe, a chilling omen of something yet to come. Now, on the eve of their 18th birthday, the young women are mysteriously disappearing one by one and feared dead. Terror has overtaken this quiet community. Could this be the work of a serial killer, one of the village elders or a horrific prophecy come true, born of the supernatural, The Occult?”
I’m still afraid that the name change doesn’t take away that the film still sounds as generic as ever. Still, they may surprise us and give us a supernatural flick that we haven’t seen before. I’m not holding my breath though.
