7/31 My Thoughts On "Demonic":

DEMONIC: Centers around the aftermath of a horrific massacre where five college students were brutally murdered inside an abandoned home. Detective Mark Lewis and psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Klein question one of the few survivors who explains they were amateur ghost-hunters, seeking out paranormal phenomenon at the abandoned house, which was believed to be haunted. But what started out as a harmless activity turned into something truly terrifying...

Back in 2014 Dimension Films was set to release 'Demonic' into North American theaters, but the studio ended up pulling the film from it's release date.. The flick did eventually get release onto dvd in the UK and Latin America back in 2015, and finally made it's US premier on Spike TV last week..

After watching Demonic last night, I can understand why the studio pulled the plug in 2014.. Maybe it's just me being burned out on paranormal flicks.. But for me personally, I found the movie to be a total bore..

The acting was decent to just ok, but the story is a mess and felt rushed.. It appears the filmmakers decided to borrow from just about every paranormal/possession film they could think of - mash it all together and shit out House of Horror aka Demonic..
