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
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.
