Trailer for Lionsgate’s ‘The Presence’

A hauntingly romantic ghost story arrives this fall as Lionsgate releases The Presence on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on October 4. Starring Oscar winning actress Mira Sorvino (Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Mighty Aphrodite, 1995), the film also features Justin Kirk (Showtime’s “Weeds”) and Shane West (A Walk to Remember). Written and directed by Tom Provost (Under Suspicion), and executive produced by The Blair Witch Project co-creator Daniel Myrick, the DVD premiere includes a “making of” featurette, audio commentary with the writer-director and storyboards with commentary.

Looking to escape the pressures of everyday life, a woman (Sorvino) travels to a secluded cabin in the woods. She’s not alone, though, because an apparition (West) inhabits the cabin and begins to stalk her. But when the woman’s boyfriend (Kirk) arrives, the spirit in the house grows darker and more obsessive. She soon starts to exhibit weird and irrational behavior and her boyfriend fears she’s been possessed by the ghost in love with her.

The flick is being billed as a romantic ghost story, but this trailer paints it as something completely different.
