James Wan produced haunted house horror ‘Demonic’ conjures US release date


The last we had anything to report on Demonic, a new haunted house horror produced by James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring), was back in November when a couple of stills were released from the film.

Today finally comes confirmation of the US release date for the film, and the UK should follow shortly after. Hopefully this new release date means a trailer is just around the corner!

The Press Release:

Dimension Films announced today that it will release the supernatural thriller DEMONIC, presented by James Wan (THE CONJURING, INSIDIOUS, SAW), on December 12, 2014. The film is produced by James Wan and Lee Clay (BEAUTIFUL BOY) and directed by Will Canon (BROTHERHOOD). The script is based on an original idea of Wan’s.

Golden Globe nominated Maria Bello (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE) stars as the lead female along with Frank Grillo (THE PURGE: ANARCHY).

The film centers on the aftermath of an 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.

“James Wan is the new master of terror, and we are thrilled to be releasing his film this December,” said Erik Lomis, President of Theatrical Distribution & Home Entertainment for The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films.

James Wan co-created the highly successful SAW and INSIDIOUS franchises and directed the box office hit THE CONJURING. Wan most recently directed FAST & FURIOUS 7, which will be released in 2015.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
