Synopsis: Michael King doesn't believe in God or The Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, the documentary filmmaker decides to make his next movie about the search for the existence of the supernatural. Michael decides to put himself at the center of the experiment–allowing demonologists, necromancers, and various practitioners of the occult to try the deepest and darkest spells and rituals they can find on him–in the hopes that when they fail, he'll once and for all have proof that religion, spiritualism and the paranormal are nothing more than myth.
