Movie Details

Demonic

The film follows the aftermath of a gruesome massacre involving a group of college students in an abandoned house. Detective Mark Lewis and psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Klein are in charge of unravelling the case. When they question the remaining survivor, he explains that they are amateur ghost-hunters trying to summon the ghosts inside the abandoned house as a harmless activity among friends, and he could not have imagine that it would turn into a truly horrifying experience.

The Good, the Bad and the Demonic:

"Demonic" pleases with its visual style, especially the moment the house looms into view, it is a perfect preface for the doom that it promises to deliver. Its predictability may have hampered its potential; the movie uses generic effects - door closes on its own, painting bursts into flame, spirit plays with the music box (music boxes to disembodied souls are like yarns to kittens) - in its attempt to make the audience shiver with fear. However, despite the scarcity of scares, the movie tries to set itself apart from others of the same genre by relying less on the actual ghost appearances and instead centers more on utilising jump-scare tactics and other psychological factors. It does have an upside down cross thrown in to further prove itself a demonic movie, lest you forget this isn't just a thriller. But it would've been more interesting if they had a brainy character who would, for once, explain how that imagery is traditionally used for the exact opposite of worshipping the devil.

The dialogues are regurgitated from textbook horror script, however there are several parts in the movie that had some pretty smart comebacks we wished we could see more of. The cast, even though led by Maria Bello and Frank Grillo, fall short at times, but the duo's presence on screen is quite pleasing as a new horror pairing to look out for. Anyone looking for some supernatural action will have to stay put till the end. The pacing of the movie is unhurried, with minimal frights within the first and second act. Horror fans who are used to Thai horror films will find the spirits in the movie relatively tame. They prefer to hide rather than show themselves; but the few glimpses we catch show that the makeup/CGI department did do a rather good job on maxing up the scary faces. This is a good film for those who want to watch horror but prefer to keep the ghost or demonic appearances to a minimal.

Trivia:

The film was originally titled "House of Horror".

Best Watched With:

The "Annabelle" crowd.
