Storyline

Four estranged friends reunite and spend the night in a remote country house that was once home to a Manson Family like cult. As the night goes on, the strange rituals in the house's past open connections between the past, the present and the subconscious, forcing all the characters to confront their deepest secrets and darkest demons, or be destroyed by them. It's a blend of The Shining style freaky horror with the emotional character focus of a film like Magnolia. The film stars a number of prominent geek culture personalities including Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Chloe Dykstra (Heroes of Cosplay), Tiffany Smith (DC All Access), etc.

David Lynch Fans Rejoice!
9 February 2018 | by JenniePennieSee all my reviews

In a day where horror audiences have seen demons and psychos kill people in every way possible, House of Demons offers a fresh take. A talented cast and crew confront big ideas in this small budget indie.

The cinematography and editing, while at times disorienting, are exciting, emotional, and vivid. The film isn't scary in the black cat jumping out, cheap scare way. Instead it's more of a moody ominous tone, psychological tension, and existential dread. I found myself multiple times reacting to the film in the way I did with Mulholland Drive or Twin Peaks - terrified and wanting to scream out while simultaneously wowed (and almost giddy) by the and thrilled by the execution of those scenes. So happy to see more films that are able to do that.

If you check out House of Demons you will be taken places you didn't expect and believe it or not may even come out of the film inspired. I highly recommend it!
