The Atticus Institute is a 2015 American independent mockumentary found footage horror film written and directed by Chris Sparling about a paranormal research institute which becomes home to the only U.S. government confirmed case of possession.
Dr. Henry West (William Mapother) founded The Atticus Institute to study paranormal activity including, E.S.P. and psychokinesis. Despite witnessing several noteworthy cases, nothing could have prepared Dr. West and his colleagues for Judith Winstead (Rya Kihlstedt). She outperforms every previous subject as her powers are realized to be demonic in nature. The U.S. government intervenes and attempts to weaponize her abilities which prove to have dire consequences. Now after nearly forty years, the classified events at the Atticus Institute are being made public.
