First Trailer: James Wan-Produced, Demonic



Announced in 2012, lensed in early 2013, and once set for release last December, it feels as if the James Wan-produced Demonic (once titled House of Horror) has been ever-present. Will we ever see it, however? 

Starring Maria Bello (A History of Violence), Frank Grillo (The Grey) and Cody Horn (Magic Mike), Demonic is currently awaiting U.S. release from Dimension Films, putting it in the same boat as the Eli Roth-produced Clown and Bustillo & Maury’s second feature, Livide. A trailer, effectively being the first good look at Demonic, has arrived online labeled as “international,” though it’s unclear for what territory.

The film, directed by Will Canon and penned by Max La Bella from a story by James Wan, follows Bello and Grillo’s characters investigating the aftermath a séance gone horribly wrong. The trailer treads a lot of familiar ground—eerie figures, ghostly visions, creepy trinkets—but also flashes a glimpse of what looks like floating viscera. That’s fun!

As mentioned above, Demonic was previously scheduled for a December 2014 release. No word on why that’s shifted, or when the film might surface. [JoBlo]
