Demonic Possession is a horror sub-genre that refuses to eb, despite typically being a little cookie-cutter. In the past few years, we’ve seen the release of The Devil Inside, The Last Exorcism, The Possession, The Rite, Devil’s Due and The Conjuring franchise, to name a few. Add one part helpless soul, one part religious insignia, mix in either an ‘I’m losing my faith’ priest or ‘she can’t speak Latin’ and you’ve got yourself a bonafide demonic possession. A Demon Within is the latest possession film to hit my horror radar, and we’ll be able to add it to the demon-fighting collection come January 12th, 2018.
It is claimed that A Demon Within is based on true events that occurred in the 1870’s, and follows a Doctor as he returns to his family home where a young girl now resides.. who also happens to be host to an unwelcome guest. Watch the official trailer for the film, above.
In 1914, Crestwick, a demonic spirit named Nefas surfaced to prey on a family, ending with the death of an innocent young girl. The mysterious events haunted the mid-western community for years. Now, decades later, a skeptical doctor must stop history from repeating itself by confronting his personal demons and fighting to save the life of a teenage girl who has become possessed in his family’s old house.
Charlene Amoia (How I Met Your Mother), Julia Larsen, Clint Hummel (The Quick and the Undead), Jeremy Miller, Patricia Ashley, Michael Ehlers, and Cole Crawford star. A Demon Within is directed by duo Ayush Banker and Justin LaReau.
A Demon Within will see a limited theatrical release and VOD release through Blue Fox Entertainment on January 12th, 2018.
