Anything For Jackson…
From the Press Release
Vortex Words + Pictures is proud to announce principal photography is complete on their new Super Channel Fuse Original horror feature, ANYTHING FOR JACKSON, which was filmed on location in Barrie, Ontario. The film is anticipated to premi-ere Fall 2020 on Super Channel Fuse in Canada.
After losing their only grandson in a car accident, grief-stricken Audrey (Sheila McCarthy) and Henry (Julian Richings), a doctor, kidnaps his pregnant patient with the intentions of performing a “reverse Exorcism”, putting Jackson inside her un-born child. It doesn’t take long to figure out Jackson isn’t the only ghost the grandparents invited into their home. Now it’s a race against time for the couple, as well as the pregnant woman to figure a way out of the haunting they’ve set upon them-selves.
