Neill Blomkamp’s “Demonic” teaser lives up to its terrifying name

“Demonic” is definitely a change for the directors of “District 9” and “Chappie”.


Demonic, the latest film written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, released his trailer. This look at Demonic doesn’t tell us much about the movie, but the quick cuts of terrifying images certainly live up to the movie’s name.

Demonic stars Carly Pape (Elysium, Arrow), who is seen entering what appears to be a virtual reality world. Quick cuts show glimpses of cuts appearing on one arm, which appears to be a demon in a closet and on fire. Lots of fire. The official synopsis of Demonic says the film is about “a young woman unleashes terrifying demons when supernatural forces that cause a decades-old rift between mother and daughter are revealed.”

This gruesome new movie also stars Chris William Martin (Super girl, Congratulated), Michael rogers (Beyond the black rainbow, Two for the money), and Nathalie Boltt (Riverdale, District 9). Demonic marks the film debut of Blomkamp’s 2015 film, Chappie. Before that, Blomkamp also made the years 2013 Elysium and its beginnings, 2009 District 9, which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay, and was nominated for Best Picture.

Blomkamp directed the movie during the pandemic in Canada, and it seems like a departure from the grimy sci-fi movies he’s known for. Going out into a summer filled with great horror movies like A Quiet Place, Part II and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Demonic Looks like this might just be the type of low-budget, low-key horror movie that might surprise audiences.

Demonic arrives in theaters and VOD services on August 20. Discover the teaser of Demonic below.
