BRAIN ON FIRE––Starring CHLOE MORETZ. (World Premiere @ Toronto International Film Festival last September 2016––Theatrical Release coming sometime in 2017.
I read the memoir BRAIN ON FIRE: MY MONTH OF MADNESS when it came out back in 2012. Written in the style of journalist (which writer Cahalan is), I found it educational, utterly riveting, and genuinely horrifying. It's also a true story that could explain the centuries old, mistaken accusations of demonic possession. Hope the film will be as intense as the book.
"When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she’d gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened?"
