Fango was good enough to post up a bunch of new pics from the new indie feature 'Chronicles of an Exorcism'. Check them out below. But before you do that read a little more about the flick.

Nick G. Miller, writer and helmer, has created a docu-type Exorcism...“so the audience is not only watching this horrifying experience, they’re actually a part of it,” Miller tells Fango.

'Chronicles of an Exorcism' was originally planned to be a mini-feature and Miller himself was to be playing the lead role. However, “after two days of shooting, they fired their director and asked if I would direct,” he reveals. “I agreed, but only if they would allow me to do a completely new script. They agreed, and after I finished a page-one rewrite inspired by true events, we decided to shoot a full feature on the subject. Matthew Ashford ended up playing Father Michael, and I took the role of Father Lucas. I felt it would be easier for me to direct with Matt playing the lead.

“We made a decision early on that our goal was to ensure the story was disturbing, while at the same time staying true to the events we researched,” he continues. “We did about six months of research on both sides of the story—one being that of the Church and the other being that of demonology. We had to make sure that what we said and did in the film was historically accurate, meaning the rites of exorcism, the use of the Bible passages, the actions and reactions of the priests, the pastor and the possessed girl, as well as the actual tools used during the exorcism.”

Shot in North Carolina, in an abandoned house. “When it came time to shoot the full feature,” Miller notes, “there was no doubt we wanted to go back there. The house was set in the middle of a cornfield, and was perfect for the story.”

The cast includes Ray W. Keziah and David Michael Ross, who produced the movie with Miller, Ashford and John Mullis, and Dara Wedel as the possessed girl, and the writer/director says, “I could not have asked for a better cast and crew. We shot in sequence, which was somewhat easier on the actors, allowing them to stay in the moment. Not only was it a grueling shoot, but due to the storyline and what we really knew about the subject matter, it was a challenge for the cast. We had to be careful how we approached this story.“

“I made it clear to the cast and crew that I wanted the movie to have an authentic ‘amateur filmmaker’ look,” he adds. “That’s the only way this story could be told. We didn’t want to ‘Hollywood’ it up. There are no special effects in this movie, and what makes it scary is the fact that this is how the real thing happens. Somewhere in the world, an exorcism just like the one we present is being performed as you read this article. And whether you believe in demons, God or whatever, that in and of itself is disturbing.”

Echelon Studios has signed on to handle the distribution. Miller and co. are busy as ever after initially starting up on their new comedy project, 'The Unlikelys', following the 'Chronicles of an Exorcism' wrap. They are now developing a new horror called 'The Reunion'.

“I’ve always had a love for horror and sci-fi,” the filmmaker says. “As a child, I would stay up late and watch TV shows and movies by filmmakers and writers such as Rod Serling, Wes Craven, Stanley Kubrick, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury and many others. I believe that deep down, all people like the thought of being scared while at the same time knowing they are in safe surroundings. And the thought of knowing that what they are seeing really happened, or could happen at any time, makes it even scarier!”

Along with the new pics below you can check out the trailer too! And don't forget to view the flick's MySpace page here.
