Altar, a horror/mystery film directed by Nick Willing and starring Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense), Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises) and Antonia Clarke (Les Miserables), is set to hit DVD on February 17.

What is Altar?

ALTAR follows one family as they move into a timeworn, dilapidated country mansion in order to restore it to its former splendor. But, in the process, they awaken the ghosts of the house’s original inhabitants whose curse still looms darkly over the haunted estate. What follows is a hair-raising ordeal of spectral apparitions and demonic possession that threatens to destroy the lives of ALTAR’S desperate protagonists in this early realm and beyond.

I have not had the pleasure of seeing this film yet, but from the synopsis, stills and trailer, it promises to be a phenomenal film. Below is a small collection of stills and the trailer.


You can pick up Altar tomorrow everywhere DVDs are sold. I will post my thoughts on the film this week.
