'Demonic': Release date, spoilers, plot and all about Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi horror flick
After taking a break of six long years, Neill Blomkamp is set to don the director’s hat for the upcoming horror movie ‘Demonic’. Blomkamp’s last feature film as director was ‘Chappie’ in 2005, which starred Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, and Dev Patel in pivotal roles.
However, this time he has changed his part a bit. From making sci-fi movies like ‘Elysium’ and ‘District 9’, Blomkamp is not turning toward the horror genre. His upcoming movie, titled ‘Demonic’, revolves around a young woman who unleashes terrifying demons when supernatural forces at the root of a decades-old rift between mother and daughter are ruthlessly revealed.
Blomkamp has perfectly kept everything in wraps, not much information is known about the movie as he wants the viewers to enjoy the thrills when they sit to watch the movie. It is one of those movies that’ll make you feel uncomfortable with its eeriness. ‘Hereditary’, ‘The Babadook’ and ‘The Conjuring’ are some of the films that have managed to enthrall viewers with their magnificent horror content.
Will this movie be able to match that level? It certainly has the potential to do so. Here’s everything we know about the movie.
