FROM THE PRESS NOTES:
When Carly Spenser (Carly Pope) learns that her estranged mother Angela (Nathalie Boltt) has
fallen into a coma, she reluctantly agrees to take part in a cutting-edge therapy that will allow
her to tap into Angela’s still-active brain and communicate with her. Observed by physician
Michael (Michael J. Rogers) and neuroscientist Daniel (Terry Chen), she enters a harrowing
simulation of Angela’s mindscape where she discovers the powerful supernatural force that
drove her mother to commit unspeakable acts of violence nearly two decades earlier.
Afterward, haunted by terrifying visions, Carly joins forces with her old friend Martin (Chris
William Martin) as she desperately tries to fend off the monstrous demon before it can enter a
new host and inflict more pain and suffering on the world.
