Exorcism movies are usually about extinct ghosts. In "Anything For Jackson," on the other hand, two grandparents try to transfer the spirit of their deceased grandson to a pregnant woman's unborn baby. Here's the trailer:
Exorcism horror meets M. Night Shyamalan's "The Visit" and there's a touch of "Tenet" - that's how "Anything For Jackson" can be described, based on the trailer for the horror movie.
For where Christopher Nolan sends people backward through time in his new sci-fi film, in "Anything For Jackson" two grandparents (Sheila McCarthy, Julian Richings) kidnap a pregnant woman to transfer the spirit of her only grandson who died in a car accident to the baby – exorcism backward, so to speak.
SICK AND OBVIOUSLY ALSO GOOD
This remarkably sick idea naturally makes horror fans curious and some of them could already see "Anything For Jackson". The film premiered at the 2020 Toronto Virtual Film Festival, where Joe Lipsett of the horror site Bloody Disgusting watched it. His conclusion:
"McCarthy and Richards are great. Their performance, creepy ghost design, and some really disturbing moments make 'Anything For Jackson' an original contribution to the subgenre of the exorcism film."
"Anything For Jackson" does not yet have a German release date. But it would have to go with the devil if this film is not released soon.
