Neill Blomkamp (District 9) is back this year with new supernatural horror movie Demonic, set for theatrical, On Demand and Digital release via IFC Midnight on August 20, 2021.
We’ve learned this morning that the first official trailer for Demonic will be debuting on the morning of Thursday, June 3rd, with a short “countdown” teaser released today.
This first look at the movie promises that there is indeed a demonic entity in Blomkamp’s new movie, which is being billed as a “supernatural horror/sci-fi film.” Preview it below!
Carly Pope (Elysium), Chris William Martin (The Age of Adaline, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, The Vampire Diaries), and Michael Rogers (Siren, The Blacklist, Supernatural) star.
In Demonic, a young woman unleashes terrifying demons when supernatural forces at the root of a decades old rift between mother and daughter are ruthlessly revealed in this horror-thriller from director Neill Blomkamp.
Arianna Bocco, President of IFC Films, said in a recent statement, “Neil Blomkamp exploded onto the filmmaking scene with District 9 and has made his mark by creating films that challenge and subvert the genre. It’s exciting to work together on this highly anticipated new vision, and be immersed in yet another world terrifyingly similar to our own.”
Neill Blomkamp, Mike Blomkamp of STABILITi Studios, Stuart Ford and Linda McDonough of AGC Studios are on board as producers. Serving as executive producers are AGC’s Miguel Palos Jr., Alastair Burlingham, Charlie Dombek, Viktor Muller, and Steven St. Arnaud.
