AMHRadio Talks THE ATTICUS FILES with Writer/Director Chris Sparling
America's Most Haunted Radio talks with writer/director CHRIS SPARLING about the making of fascinating faux-documentary possession movie THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE. Anchor Bay Entertainment presents disturbing horror thriller THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE, from producer of THE CONJURING Peter Safran, released January 20st, 2015. Written and directed by Chris Sparling (BURIED) in his directorial debut, THE ATTICUS INSTITUTE stars Rya Khilstedt (DEXTER), William Mapother (LOST, THE GRUDGE), Harry Groener (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER), John Rubenstein (ANGEL) and Sharon Maughan (THE BANK JOB). Dr. Henry West founded The Atticus Institute in the early 1970s to test individuals expressing extrasensory abilities: E.S.P., clairvoyance, psychokinesis, etc. Despite witnessing noteworthy cases, nothing could have prepared Dr. West and his colleagues for Judith Winstead. She outperformed every subject they had ever studied – soon gaining the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense, who subsequently took control of the research facility. The more experiments they conducted on Judith, the clearer it became that her abilities were the manifestation of evil forces within her - there are powers that exist in this world that simply cannot be controlled. Chris Sparling is from Providence, Rhode Island. He wrote the 2010 film BURIED, for which he won "Best Original Screenplay" from the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures, as well as a Goya Award from the Spanish Academy of Cinematic Art and Sciences. His Black List script, ATM, was produced by Gold Circle Films and released by IFC in 2012. His most recent script, SEA OF TREES,starring Matthew McConaughey and directed by Gus Van Sant will be released in 2015.
