A film of anguish filmed in secret during the pandemic.
While waiting to see District 10 , the sequel to District 9 , Neill Blomkamp will be releasing a new feature film. The South African director, to whom we also owe Chappie or Elysium , secretly directed during the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada a supernatural anguish film called Demonic and whose theatrical release (and simultaneous VOD) is scheduled for August 20 in the US.
Demonic is about a young woman named Carly (played by Carly Pope) who visits her mother at a facility known as Therapol. A mother whom she knows little and we teach her that she has cracked and orchestrated a bloody massacre. Since then, she’s been locked in her own mind … It will be up to Carly to venture into a simulation designed on purpose to try to help the doctors figure out how her mother could have committed these terrible acts.
