Horror movies are nothing if not effective cautionary tales: never drive behind a truck filled with logs, never go to a secluded cabin trip, never split up. The latest lesson from The Possession of Hannah Grace is never allow yourself to be alone in a morgue with a body that died under mysterious circumstances.

But that's where Shay Mitchell's former cop Megan Reed finds herself when the body of a young woman who was undergoing an exorcism is brought in. Fresh out of rehab following some unexplained trauma, Megan asserts to the EMT that she can handle herself — despite his dire warnings about the aftereffects of an exorcism gone wrong. "When you're dead, you're dead," Megan declares, before finding that this isn't quite the case when Hannah Grace's body snaps back to life, the demon looking for a new vessel to possess.

The cast is rounded out by Kirby Johnson, Stana Katic, Grey Damon, andNick Thune. You can also see the creepy first poster for the film below.
