The Reading Key Art BET Plus

Some connections should never be made. BET+ has released the official trailer for Lee Daniels‘ forthcoming thriller, The Reading, starring Mo’Nique.

About The Film (via ET):

Emma Leeden is an author who recently lost her husband and two children during a home invasion.

A year after the incident, Emma is still deeply scarred by the events and keeps away from the public in a fortified home.

When she decides to detail the horrific experience in her new book, Invasion, her manager arranges a staged reading to generate press and hires a medium, Sky Brown (Chasity Sereal), to lead.

Although Emma doesn’t buy into Sky’s connection with the spirits, she’s quickly proven wrong when the medium is possessed by a dark spirit and unexpected evil presenting itself as one of Emma’s daughters.

Trapped in the author’s home, the group faces off against a terrifying force that they can’t get away from.
