Synopsis for Anything for Jackson

After losing their only grandson in a car accident, grief-stricken Audrey (Sheila McCarthy) and Henry (Julian Richings), a doctor, kidnaps his pregnant patient with the intentions of performing a “reverse Exorcism”, putting Jackson inside her unborn child. It doesn’t take long to figure out Jackson isn’t the only ghost the grandparents invited into their home. Now it’s a race against time for the couple, as well as the pregnant woman to figure a way out of the haunting they’ve set upon themselves.

Director, Justin G. Dyck has directed over 25 films and dozens of series episodes. Justin demonstrates the kind of talent and ease of facility that only develops when people acquire a strong focus early in their lives; his interest in film is a prime example of this phenomenon and it has demonstrated itself at every opportunity. In 2004 Justin earned a BFA from Ryerson University before officially starting his career in film and television production. Since then he has worked as a director, cinematographer, editor, and producer. This vast experience helped establish Justin as a well-rounded and knowledgeable director who’s understanding of the tools enable impeccable execution of the creative. Justin’s strengths have allowed him to direct a wide variety of genres from romantic comedy to children’s film and television. With several new projects on the horizon in a wide variety of genres and styles, Justin G. Dyck isn’t showing any sign of slowing down.

“Vortex pictures supports artists, and I’m elated to be working with them. From day one, Bill Marks and his entire team has trusted us to tell this story our way while simultaneously offering us unlimited support and advice based on years of experience. The entire cast and crew attached to this project is beyond incredible and gives me the ultimate confidence as I enter the horror world for the first time as a director. We’re setting out to put a new spin on a favorite genre and I can’t wait to share this film with the world.” – Justin Dyck, Director

“We are excited to be working with Vortex films and the team at A71 to bring this unique film to fans of the horror genre on Super Channel Fuse. It has all the elements that are sure to make it a fan-favourite with this audience,” said Jackie Pardy, Chief Content Officer, Super Channel
