Demonic has been around for a while. Director Will Canon shot the film back in February of 2013, but it didn’t score a release date until late July 2014 and then in September, The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films nixed the December 12th release entirely. So when’s the film coming out? A new date has yet to be set, but according to the film’s very first trailer, it’s coming soon.
Demonic stars Frank Grillo as a detective and Maria Bello as a psychologist, and follows what happens when the pair investigates a brutal massacre inside an abandoned home that took the lives of five college students. Hit the jump to check out the first Demonic trailer. The film also stars Cody Horn, Dustin Milligan, Megan Park, Scott Mechlowicz and Aaron Yoo, and is produced by James Wan.
You’d think a film that keeps getting delayed wouldn’t look too promising, but this trailer is actually pretty creepy. Sure, it’s loaded with genre tropes and predictable jump scares, but pairing the past massacre with the present investigation puts a somewhat fresh spin on it. Plus, how can you go wrong with this cast? Grillo and Bello always deliver and the group of college kids isn’t just a mash-up of random, hot rising talent. They’re all accomplished actors. It’s hard not to have doubts considering what the movie went through, but it certainly seems like there’s a chance Demonic could be a quality haunted house film.
(And by the way, is it just me or does that house look exactly like the one from The Conjuring?)
