“I am thrilled to be releasing my second film, Inner Demon. Intended to be a follow up to my first film Family Demons, it is a nightmarish survival tale of a young girl that is trapped and must find a way out of an emotionally and physically terrifying situation. Inner Demon gave me the opportunity to discover the incredible talent of Sarah Jeavons who is being hailed as one to watch and work with a remarkable crew made up of some of South Australia’s best in producing, design and sound. I am grateful to the South Australian Film Corporation for creating such a fantastic opportunity like the FilmLab Initiative that supports the production of low budget feature films like Inner Demon.
FilmLab encourages filmmakers to push boundaries and think outside the box and I’m very proud of what we accomplished with Inner Demon” said Director and Co-Producer, Ursula Dabrowsky.
