District 9 director Neill Blomkamp returns with his brand-new supernatural chiller Demonic, shot during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Within the roots of a decades-old conflict between mother and daughter is a repressed evil. Suddenly unleashed by a young woman, that evil takes the form of terrifying demonic entities. Soon, the woman is given no choice but to fend for herself before all Hell breaks further loose.

Making efficient use of its spare palette of locations, Demonic is a petrifying slice of quarantine horror. Blomkamp further proves himself as a filmmaker that is versatile and unbound from the constraints of genre.
