"Separate from any real-world connections, Possession does remain entertaining, pairing a lovesick teenager with a menacing predator and exploring the various dynamics such a relationship might provide. Chris Levine brings a terror to Bundy that’s perfect for the Halloween season, making “Possession: An American Serial Killer” a challenging, yet rewarding piece of horror theater."
"London Levine Pictures’ production of Michael Levine’s Possession: An American Serial Killer gives a whole new meaning to the term bloodlust. Dark and sexual, this gruesome play – directed by Denise Devin – explores the actions of one of America’s most notorious killers. ...Due to its content, this production is definitely for mature audiences only."
"This time of year is strewn with plays that promise to frighten or scare but this play is very different and much more than a cheap thrill to speed your heart and dry your throat. It is visceral and disturbing and real.
The performances feel true, the actors channeling rather than acting and the effect of it all is honestly terrifying. Which is exactly the producer's plan of course."

Writer of Possession: An American Serial Killer, Michael Levine is an Air Force Veteran and New York Film Academy Graduate(NYFA) with a B.A. in Screenwriting. Possession: An American Serial Killer is something he wrote while attending NYFA for a class project. “I didn’t want to just write a normal play, it’s been done, I wanted to write something scary and real and base it off one of the most charismatic serial killers of all time, Ted Bundy.”
When he is not writing screenplays, Michael is a trained MMA fighter and bodybuilder with a love for all things horror. It was also his idea to donate a portion of proceeds to the Veteran Affairs(VA) as they helped him get into and afford NYFA and continue to help him forward his writing career today. “We have a tremendous cast, a talented Director and a space designed for up close and personal material at the ZJU Theatre.”
He is excited for you to enjoy his play and he’d like to thank his family for the support, his brother for taking the reigns and putting it together and you for enjoying the evening with us.
