“Wraith,” the recently-released supernatural thriller, seeks to drive home that all life is God-breathed and sacred at every stage, according to writer-director Michael O. Sajbel.
Released on May 8, the PG-13 film explores the supernatural story of a family who invites evil into their home after they decide they might not go forward with an unplanned pregnancy.
Sajbel, a born-again Christian who previously directed “One Night With the King” based on the biblical story of Esther, told The Christian Post he set out to make a “scary” film that would appeal to teens while promoting a strong pro-life message.
“The theme of this movie is that life wants to live, life wants to thrive, and God is the Author of that life,” he shared. “Unfortunately, today, out of our arrogance, we believe we can control it and manipulate and terminate it for our own convenience. We’re taught that life isn’t viable and it’s a mass of tissue. Really, what’s in the womb is a living, God-breathed, God-knitted person. This film, while not promoting any particular agenda, is very life-affirming.”
The film’s synopsis reads: “After living uneventfully for years in their historic home, the Lukens family have somehow awakened a ghostly presence. Who is this frightening spirit and why won’t it leave their 14-year-old daughter, Lucy, alone? Everything changed when Dennis and Katie Lukens discovered they were pregnant again. Expecting a baby in your 40s is always high-risk and dangerous, so when the Lukens decide all options are on the table — including termination — the unexpected starts to happen. Sinister forces are now conspiring against the family. But is this eerie, wraith-like spirit actually trying to haunt them … or help them?”
