Demonic (2015)

Directed by Will Canon. Written by Canon, Max La Bella and Doug Simon. Starring Maria Bello, Frank Grillo, Cody Horn, Dustin Milligan, Megan Park, Aaron Yoo, Scott Mechlowicz and Curtis Armstrong.

Plot: a police officer and a psychologist investigate the deaths of a group of people.

Detective Lewis (Grillo) and Dr. Elizabeth Klein (Bello) find a single survivor at a crime scene in Louisiana. John (Milligan), the survivor, tells them that his girlfriend, Michelle (Horn) and her ex-boyfriend, Bryan (Mechlowicz) are missing because they all performed a seance and things, as they do, went horribly wrong.

So as not to give things away, I’ll just tell you why NOT to watch it:

  1. It’s super unrealistic. They all agree to stay in the house even after one of them is drug down a hallway.
  2. It’s kinda boring. Wasn’t very entertaining at all actually.
  3. Not even a cast this good could prevail against this ill-conceived plot.
  4. It was unoriginal. It’s been done before. And better.
  5. The rules were stupid.
  6. No real character development. You didn’t learn enough about anyone to care whether they lived or not.
  7. We didn’t see enough of the murders. And they should’ve done more scary stuff with the ghosts.
  8. The twist was shit. So stupid. We’ve seen this done before as well.

Don’t watch it. That’s all we can really tell you.

Our score: 14.
