After making a name for himself with sci-fi movies like District 9, Elysium and Chappie, Neill Blomkamp is taking the plunge into horror this summer with his upcoming film Demonic. Although this had previously been described as a more straightforward supernatural horror movie, the movie does also appear to have some sci-fi elements including a form of virtual reality. That being said, the first trailer is light on plot details and more focused on imagery and tone than anything else. The official synopsis says that the movie revolves around a woman who “unleashes terrifying demons when supernatural forces at the root of a decades-old rift between mother and daughter are ruthlessly revealed.” Demonic stars Carly Pope, Nathalie Boltt, Chris William Martin and it hits theatres and VOD on Aug. 20th; check out the first trailer below and see what you think.
