District 9 Director Neill Blomkamp returns with a terrifying sci-fi horror film filled with a demonic presence.
There is an upcoming Neill Blomkamp horror film, and its official trailer has seriously given fans the chills.
The film is called 'Demonic', and though the title may sound a little generic, it is certainly not the case for this horror flick. Judging by the trailer, the film is going to be both terrifying and trippy.
'Demonic' is both written and directed by Blomkamp, who is best known for his science fiction action film 'District 9', and dystopian science fiction action film 'Elysium'.
Here is everything we know about 'Demonic', including release date, plot, cast, trailer, and more.
'Demonic' is coming to theaters on August 20, 2021. The film premiered at Berlinale (71st Berlin International Film Festival ) in March 2021. IFC Midnight brought the distribution rights for the film for the US and gave it an August 2021 theatrical release. For those who can't go to the theaters, the film will also be available on Digital Rental, and Video on Demand on August 20, 2021.
According to Deadline, Blomkamp quietly shot the film during the pandemic.
The film's plot remains mostly hidden. Both the official synopsis and the trailer does not give away much of the film's plot, although it says that it will follow a young woman who "unleashes terrifying demons when supernatural forces at the root of a decades-old rift between mother and daughter are revealed."
Judging from the creepy trailer, 'Demonic' seems like 'The Matrix' but with demons. In the trailer, we see a young woman getting transported into a simulation slash alternate reality.
The trailer is filled with creepy shots dispersed with some eerie chanting and music. The next clips show shots of demons, places that seem to hold rituals, authorities lying lifeless on the grass, a red bible, and eventually, a woman sitting on an upside-down red chair. It doesn't give us any spoilers, but it does a perfect job at establishing a frightening atmosphere. You can watch the trailer at the bottom part of this article.
There is very limited casting information for now. We do know that Carly Pope is heading the cast list, although we do not know the name of her character yet. She plays the role of the woman who gets transported into the simulation world. The demonic force seems to be after her, and she plays a vital role in taking down whatever sinister curse the presence of the demon brings.
Chris William Martin will play Martin, while Nathalie Boltt plays a character named Angela. Michael J. Rogers and Terry Chen are also attached to star in the film.
Yes, there is. Travel into the mind-bending and terrifying alternate reality. Check out the official trailer for 'Demonic' below.
