Good watch
26 June 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Demonic is another horror movie under James Wan's filmography. And it's surprisingly a good watch. Better than the Insidious series and the Conjuring series I have to add. Let's face it Insidious 1 was hilarious, remember the mask connected to a headphone via a pipe seance scene? That was absolutely horrendous. The Conjuring two was also really typical and not scary at all (Bethsheba looked so hilarious and the climax was way too overdramatic). Demonic while being quite typical, has a good twist which works for it and quite a good amount of scares. And unlike overdramatics of the above mentioned movie, Demonic plays out in a more suppressive way.

The movie interlaces two timeline overarching the main plot line, with the setting being the same place, an allegedly haunted house turned crime scene. One focuses on the interrogation of a guy named "John" who is suspected of killing his friend, and the other focuses on how John and his friends came to the house. The second timeline plays out as a ghost hunting show, but it works in this case. While the plot is nothing new, there's a twist here and there which works for the movie.

The performances were pretty linear, it wasn't a screamdom like a typical horror movie, there wasn't any overdramatics, it was just pretty straight.

Overall, Demonic is among the better horror movies of this year, while it isn't "unique", there are twists in the movie which makes it for a pretty good watch, and is a better horror movie by James Wan. Recommended to casual horror watchers.
