There is evidence to suggest that children are highly susceptible to paranormal phenomenon.
They can see what adults cannot.
They believe what adults deny.
And they are trying to warn us.
In THE MESSENGERS, a thriller starring Kristen Stewart as Jess, Dylan McDermott and Penelope Ann Miller as Jess’ parents Roy and Denise Solomon and John Corbett as field hand John Burwell, the Solomon family has left the fast paced life of Chicago for the secluded world of a North Dakota farm. Amidst the peaceful sway of the farm’s field of sunflowers, Jess, 16, soon realizes how terrifying seclusion can be when she and her brother Ben, 3, begin seeing ominous apparitions invisible to everyone else. When those spirits become violent, Jess’ sanity is questioned - a double jeopardy for the tormented teen. Her troublesome past comes face to face with the past of those who once lived in the house, a perilous confrontation that leaves her believability in question with those she desperately tries to warn before it is too late. Nothing is what it seems on the Solomon farm and the harbingers of doom are gravely underestimated.
Brothers Danny and Oxide Pang direct their first American feature film and English language debut, They have turned the ghost genre inside out with THE MESSENGERS and it was their real life brush with the paranormal that influenced their enhancement of the story from page to screen.
