To be fair, no film satisfies the horror genre quite like The Conjuring but this movie almost lives up to it in terms of story and scares. Demonic benefits from a good cast and a smart twist on the found-footage trope which was getting terribly annoying in the past few years. Combining both cam footage and keeping it classic was very entertaining. And although it might be a little bland at first, it builds up enough tension till the plot-twist at the end which is definitely the best part in the entire movie.

hmmm; not terrible. the little twist at the end was nice -- but not great.

Really wish I knew this movie was, in part, a found footage film. I never would have wanted to see it then.

Maria Bello classes up an average ghost thriller just enough to make it watchable. 5/10

The acting could've been better but this was a well made, manipulative little horror movie

This film was cliched and up to its neck in false jump scares. Not worth anyone's time, not even for the most committed horror fan.

A police officer and a psychologist track down the cause of the deaths of a group of college students, as we witness how history repeats itself where the victims are caught in a similar fate with a previous group brutally murdered in the same house during an attempt to summon the spirits.
With the story told in two interlacing plots, the audience is treated to a double-genre approach; where the truth of the murders are revealed slowly by the investigation-interrogation (detective-like) efforts taking place after the incident, and the flashbacks of victims haunted by unknown presence during the incident (horror). This gives the 86-mins horror flick a rather intriguing appeal, suspense with a few good jump-scares.
Produced by acclaimed Malaysian-born director James Wan, who gave us notable works like Saw, The Conjuring and Insidious; Demonic is a decent attempt by newcomer Will Canon in directing. It is one of the very few horror films which has an adequate ending. A twist is there, with the knots untied in a way which does not annoy like many failed horror flicks do

Actually not bad haunted house/ghost horror flick, gave me one decent jump-scare and that was more than I was hoping for.

Despite some good elements and creepy scenery, Demonic feels too generic to stand on it's own.

The preview of this movie looked actually good, and so that was the reason I decided to watch this movie, and although that was a long time ago because I completely had forgotten about this movie. But still the movie had some good jump scares that really freaked me out, but the narrative and the story were kind of very a let down. The story was all over the place and the way the jumped from the present to the recordings, it just felt odd. While the story was kind of predictable, and close to the end when it suddenly became interestingly creepy, the ending was just bad. That being said, I was disappointed even though it did scare me a few times, and even with some recognizable actors, the story was the death of this movie.

The movie has a simple plot and a few jump scares. The way the story was explained kept me captivated. Overall, it's an average horror movie and a decent crime thriller. If you're hanging out with some friends that wants to watch scary stuff but they're new to it, this movie is the right movie; A beginner's horror movie.

Wrong synopsis and picture, but the cast is right. Nothing new here and confused me a little at the end, but it was an okay watch.

Total rubish. Story about a group of young adults investigate a house where a series of crimes occured 25 years ago, and only one survive. They all are dead, and a detective starts to investigate the case. Totally porevisible plot, bad actings, the scenes don't scare anyone, horrible effects. One of the worst terror movies of the year. 3 /10

Obs: the cover and description here in RT is wrong. they are from other movie.

This is more of a mystery movie than horror.... plot holes abound and you will find yourself cursing as the teenagers make stupid mistakes, but it has a few nice scary scenes...

Really Boring...the whole movie I was just rolling my eyes irritated by when this film was going to end.
