“I don’t do exorcisms,” Aaron Eckhart asserts in the new trailer for Incarnate. “I don’t use religious methods to treat the symptoms. I go inside the victim’s mind to treat the disease.” That’s the summary of the film, in which his character is called upon to help a family desperate to save their possessed little boy.

One question stands out: if mind-meld technology actually existed, wouldn’t someone be putting it to more practical use than, like, battling demons?

Incarnate is directed by Brad Peyton (San Andreas), and besides Eckhart it features an intriguing cast, including David Mazouz (Gotham’s Bruce Wayne) and Carice van Houten (Game of Thrones’ Melisandre). It’ll be out December 2.
